Two Emmy-nominated reality producers are developing a series about infidelity, featuring stories of unfaithful spouses who have turned to a popular online matchmaking service that caters to attached people seeking extramarital affairs.

“The sanctity of marriage is clearly a hot-button topic in today’s environment,” said Jane Lipsitz, who is partnered on the project with Dan Cutforth. “Exploring the current state of love and commitment against the backdrop of our changing social landscape makes for a fascinating and daring unscripted drama.”

The project is now being shopped to TV networks.

The program will explore the reasons behind infidelity and will chronicle the exploits of members of the controversial Ashley Madison Agency online dating service.

While the agency’s customers started off protecting their anonymity, “when they became so impacted by their experiences, they wanted, or even needed, to open up and talk about how the encounters had affected their lives,” Ashley Madison founder Darren Morgenstern said.

Cutforth and Lipsitz earned Emmy nominations for their work on “Project Greenlight” and “Last Comic Standing.” Their upcoming series include “Project Runway” and the third installment of “Project Greenlight” for Bravo.
