In the clip, which can be watched below, Rusty Sabich (Jake Gyllenhaal) is called into work one morning to learn that his colleague Carolyn Polhemus (Renate Reinsve) has been murdered – and Rusty is the prime suspect. Over the course of the gripping teaser, we learn that Rusty's relationship with Carolyn might've gone a bit deeper than just your everyday affair – and that his obsession with her puts him at the scene of the crime.

The series explores obsession, sex, politics, and the power and limits of love, as the accused fights to hold his family and marriage together."

The cast includes Ruth Negga, Bill Camp, Elizabeth Marvel, Peter Sarsgaard, Lily Rabe, Nana Mensah, Chase Infiniti, O-T Fagbenle, Matthew Alan, and Gabby Beans. David E.
