If cheating is so wrong, then it must be “right” for television.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a scripted drama is being developed surrounding the lives of the users of Ashley Madison, a website that describes itself as “the world’s leading married dating service for discreet encounters.”
Canadian production company marblemedia and U.S. production company Out East Entertainment will develop the project, which will delve into the psyche of the average cheating spouse. According to Ashley Madison CEO Noel Biderman, the show was inspired by the users of the site and intrigue into infamous cheating scandals over the years.
“We’d all liked to have been a fly on the wall as Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton fooled around in the Oval Office, and we’d all loved to have been there when Tiger Woods bedded mistress after mistress,” Biderman explains to THR.
While Biderman presumes that people are obsessed with Tiger Wood’s alleged Ambien sexcapades and other affairs of yore, there will be a character in the drama based on Biderman himself, who is depicted as a family man who does not have affairs, which is also known as a “get out of jail free card.”
