First Teaser for the upcoming NBC series “The Slap”

coming soon…February 12 on NBC!

It’s Hector’s 40th birthday, and his wife is throwing him a big party with lots of friends, family and food for what will undoubtedly be a happy, celebratory day. Or so they think. As Hector tries to navigate family politics, awkward friendships and the younger woman he’s secretly seeing on the side, the built-up tension explodes when Hector’s hotheaded cousin slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. Everyone is understandably stunned, and the party abruptly ends – with the child’s parents vowing legal action as they leave. But what the hosts and guests don’t know is that this moment will ignite a chain of events that will uncover long-buried secrets within this group of friends and family… and vigorously challenge the core values of everyone involved.

From Writer Jon Robin Baitz (“Brothers & Sisters”), Executive Producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (“Gladiator,” “Men in Black” franchise) and Director Lisa Cholodenko (“The Kids Are All Right”), comes this unflinching look at how one little slap… can have a huge impact.

Peter Sarsgaard stars as Hector, Uma Thurman plays Anouk, Melissa George is Rosie, Thandie Newton is Aisha, Zachary Quinto plays Harry, Brian Cox is Manolis, Owen Tanzer is Rocco and Penn Badgley is portraying Jamie.

“The Slap” Premieres Thursday, Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. before “The Blacklist.”
