If anyone knows the dangers of infidelity these days -- fictionally, at least -- it's Hannah Ware.
The former "Boss" co-star is playing a dangerous game on several levels in "Betrayal," ABC's new Sunday drama. She stars as Sara Hanley, a wife, mother and photographer whose passionate affair with a prestigious family's lawyer (Stuart Townsend) is enmeshing her ever more deeply in intrigue ... particularly since her lover is pitted against her husband in a murder trial.
"I think what really pulled me to it," Ware explains to Zap2it, "is, in terms of my story as Sara, it's an encounter that could happen to anyone. And I felt that it was very relatable. I gravitated towards Sara because you meet her in this point in her life where things seem fine and great, but she's sort of struggling not only within her marriage.
"And it's not that she has a terrible marriage, »
Betrayal begins and ends with a bloody crime scene. Photographer Sara Hadley’s (Hannah Ware) blood-soaked clothes fill the screen with a creepy sense of wonder, but that’s where the magic stops. The mystery could have been worth uncovering, if only the road to discovery was not laden with such a lackluster plot.
Developer/executive producer David Zabel (Detroit 1-8-7) attempts to spin a web of intrigue, sex, murder, and family dynamics into this Chicago-based drama, yet struggles to shed any light on why one should care about the events taking place on screen. The show screams of the obviousness it should attempt to avoid. From the first moment we see Sara meeting the tall, dark, and handsome Jack McCutchen (Stuart Townsend), it’s immediately apparent that an ...

With a title like Betrayal, a time slot after Revenge, and beautiful protagonists like lawyer Jack McAllister (Stuart Townsend, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and photographer Sara Hanley (Hannah Ware, Boss), I expected this show to beat us over our heads with outlandish passion scene after passion scene until our eyes bled.
But what we got was a very tame soap opera with none of the high-wattage emotional displays. The premise sounded promising: Jack and Sara are each married with kids and start an affair. But it turns out Jack will become the arch legal nemesis of Sara’s husband in a high-profile murder trial. »

This evening, ABC is unveiling their new romantic drama, Betrayal. Is it a good companion series for Revenge? Will it become a hit, a moderate success, or will it be quickly cancelled? Is it worth watching?
Betrayal revolves around professional photographer Sara (Hannah Ware) and top attorney Jack (Stuart Townsend) who, despite being married to other people, have a torrid affair. Things become even more complicated when Sara's husband and Jack end up on the opposite sides of a murder trial. The rest of the cast includes Henry Thomas, Chris Johnson, Wendy Moniz, Braeden Lemasters, Elizabeth McLaughlin, and James Cromwell.
Sound interesting? Here's what some of the critics are saying:
NY Times: "It would help if Mr. Townsend and Ms. Ware had chemistry, but they’re basically generic-looking actors playing out an unsurprising dynamic."
La Times: "If only we »

Unfortunately, they're both already married. Sara and Jack realize something is missing in their marriages, and fight against the realization that they've met their soulmates in one another.

It’s 2013, but apparently, some TV characters are still dropping (and breaking!) full bottles of red wine on marble floors, then doing Slow Slides of Shame down their kitchen walls.
Ok, maybe the previous sentence only applies to Sarah (Hannah Ware), the scarlet-letter-scarf-wearing “heroine” of ABC’s Betrayal, which premiered tonight as a new lead-out to Revenge on ABC. But yes, girlfriend did engage in the worst form of alcohol abuse — c’mon, there’s no way to drink wine with shards of glass mixed in! — and then collapsed in tears after learning the sexy near-stranger she’d just bedded »

Did ABC's new drama seduce you? Or were you still reeling over the Breaking Bad series finale to even find the remote control? Betrayal, starring Hannah Ware and Stuart Townsend caught up in a complicated marital affair, premiered tonight after Revenge's season-three premiere. We weren't crazy about the pilot episode, although we did really try and like it, and we advised our viewers to pass. With all the good TV on Sunday nights, it was hard to find room in our DVR schedule for a lackluster freshman drama. Did you guys have a similar experience or are you sold after watching Ware and Townsend's steamy hookups? Betrayal tells the doomed story of Sara (Ware) and Jack (Townsend), who can't help but »
ABC's tagline for its new drama "Betrayal" is "For a married woman, nothing is more dangerous than falling in love."
Really? Nothing? Let's see if we can think of a few things more dangerous than that.
- Heart disease. It's the No. 1 cause of death among women (and the population as a whole). Lead character Sara Hanley (Hannah Ware), the married woman in question who embarks on an affair, appears to be in decent shape, though, so it's probably not an immediate concern for her.
- Accidents. The sixth-leading cause of death among women, per the Cdc. Part of Sunday's (Sept. 29) series premiere involves Sara and her paramour, Jack McAllister (Stuart Townsend), meeting at a train station. She's on one side of the tracks, he's on the other. Gotta be careful crossing over.
- Trans fats. See "heart disease" above.
- Gun violence. "Betrayal" takes place in Chicago, which has »
ABC is upping the dramatic ante this year when steamy new pilot Betrayal premieres tonight. We've seen lots of ill-fated romances on TV over the years, but this series strives to make the most dangerous match of them all when a man and woman - both married to different people - share an instant and powerful attraction to each other. It's a pretty soapy story, but does it work? I checked out the pilot, and I'm sharing my thoughts on the series. What it's about: Married artist Sara (Hannah Ware) meets and shares an undeniable connection with the also-married Jack (Stuart Townsend). When Jack's family becomes entangled in a murder scandal, Sara realizes that her prosecutor husband (Chris J. Johnson) is set to square off against Jack in court in one of the highest-profile cases in Chicago. Where it works: James Cromwell plays Jack's father-in-law, head of the family business, »

ABC wants to seduce you with its new drama Betrayal, but there isn't enough television foreplay to get us all the way there. It starts flat, builds up a bit and then ends in an unsatisfying way, so just imagine a hookup that just doesn't do it for you. Which is a shame, because the cast is very attractive. Betrayal (ABC) Premieres: Sunday, Sept. 29 at 10 p.m. Time-Slot Competition: The Mentalist (CBS), Sunday Night Football (NBC) Cast: Hannah Ware, Stuart Townsend, Chris Johnson, Wendy Moniz, James Cromwell, Henry Thomas, Braeden Lemasters, Elizabeth McLaughlin Status: We've seen the first two episodes.

ABC has a way of developing the occasional drama that, viewed with the sound down, could easily be mistaken for a perfume commercial. Enter “Betrayal,” described as a limited series, which might be a convenient way of saying, “We meant for this to go away after a limited number of episodes.” Conceptually a close cousin of old-fashioned Lifetime movies, the series hinges on a married photographer who is instantly drawn to a handsome attorney, initiating (after many longing looks) a “torrid affair,” per the press notes, that onscreen doesn’t even smolder. It’s more daytime soap, frankly, than ready for primetime.
Although she’s hardly unhappy in her marriage to a Chicago prosecutor (Chris Johnson), sparks quickly fly when Sara (Brit newcomer Hannah Ware) meets Jack McAllister (Stuart Townsend, another accent-less import) at a showing of her art. He’s a high-powered fixer/inhouse counsel for an imperious boss »

Perfecting the art of the puppy-dog eyes can be an effective way to get what you want, or in the case of our featured male actors, an effective way to win over a majority of the female (and probably male) population. Invented by our loyal furry friends (who know exactly what they're doing), it is almost impossible for one to avoid those wide dramatic eyes. Be it your furry pal asking for forgiveness after destroying the rug, or your significant other trying to persuade you to do something you'd really rather not, it is inevitable that one look will convince you to do almost anything for those taking advantage of it. Cracked starring David Sutcliffe had us won over as soon as Sutcliffe appeared on screen as Detective Aidan Black. The series itself is an intense, action-filled emotional ride that we can’t get enough of. Paired with Black’s heroism, »

Is it hot in here or is it just the chemistry between Betrayal's two main characters?! ABC's juicy new drama stars Hannah Ware and Stuart Townsend as two people who are ridiculously attracted to one another. The problem? Sara (Ware) is married and her husband shares a connection with Jack (Townsend). Of course, every great TV romance (and affair) begins with an epic moment. For Sara and Jack, this moment takes place at a train station. We've got an exclusive sneak peek at Betrayal to share with you that shows off the premiere's biggest moment, one that Townsend calls "a great metaphor." In the exclusive featurette, Sara is standing at a train station and looks across the »

The tagline on this exclusive first look photo for ABC's new drama Betrayal reads: "They have no idea what they started." Well, whatever they started, it looks pretty hot. Betrayal stars Hannah Ware as Sara, a beautiful photographer who starts an affair with Jack (Stuart Townsend), a lawyer for a very powerful family. Based on this photo of the two of them having a romantic tryst in what appears to be a subway car, there is no way those two can stay away from each other. Unfortunately, Sara later finds out that her husband Drew (Chris Johnson) is prosecuting a murder suspect who is being defended by her lover Jack. Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place, eh? But when your husband and lover »
