The Real Truth About Hit Television Series Properties Set in the Hamptons

First there was the USA Network’s frothy, feel-good medical dramedy Royal Pains. Then came ABC’s deliciously campy Revenge, a thriller that just finished a four-year run. Not to be outdone, Showtime’s sizzling hot drama The Affair, which is set in Montauk has already won two Golden Globes.
