Talhotblond premieres tonight at 8/7c on Lifetime

Just a reminder that Talhotblond airs tonight at 8/7c on Lifetime. If you’re in the U.S. you can watch the trailer on Lifetime’s site. If not, here are a few details from the review at Huffpost TV:

Talhotblond is a suspenseful film, based on a true story, about a man who conducts an affair of the mind on the Internet. The passion he finds there begins to rule his life and ultimately leads to tragedy.

Garret Dillahunt of Saving Grace Raising Hope fame plays Thomas, an everyday type of guy who works in a plant. He is married and has two daughters. Once a month he plays poker with some of his friends, including one of his co-workers Brian (Brando Eaton). At one of these sessions he complains that playing poker once a month is not enough. One of his friends suggests he try online gambling.

A few nights later he signs on to the site which his friend was talking about and begins to play poker online. As he is playing he gets a request for a personal chat from someone identified as “Talhotblond.” They begin to chat on line she tells him she is an eighteen year old girl named Katie. He replies he is only a few years older than she is and that he is a marine headed to Afghanistan. And so the relationship begins.

He keeps all this secret from his wife Carol (Laura San Giacomo) and his two young daughters. To them he is still the same but they do notice he is eating healthier and exercising more. Even his friend Brian notices there is a new spark to him.
