The Slap premieres on February 12 on NBC. It is an eight-episode miniseries, adapted from Christos Tsiolkas's novel The Slap and the Australian TV series of the same name.

Meet Hector, a public servant, husband, father and valued friend on the cusp of his 40th birthday. Meet Aisha, Hector's beautiful and intelligent wife who is planning his party filled with friends and his very boisterous Greek family. Sounds like the makings of a great day, right? Wrong.
As Hector tries to navigate family politics, awkward friendships and the young woman he is dangerously captivated by, 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. What the hosts and guests don't know, however, 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.
