"Another Woman's Husband" is a movie drama that aired on Lifetime Network for the first time on Tuesday, March 7, 2000. "Another Woman's Husband" is directed by Noel Nosseck and is based on the 1998 novel "Swimming Lessons" by Anna Tuttle Villegas and Lynne Hugo. It stars Gail O'Grady, Lisa Rinna and Dale Midkiff, as stated in the New York Times.
Produced by C.M. Two and Hearst Entertainment, the movie follows the story of a married swimming instructor/coach who strikes up a friendship with a female student in her swimming class. The two women become best friends but their friendship is tested when it is revealed that they share the same man.
"Another Woman's Husband" touches on themes of forbidden love, adultery, abandonment, friendship between women, and betrayal of trust in the marriage. The movie's theme is noticeably similar to an old 1980's movie entitled "Just Between Friends" starring Mary Tyler Moore and Christine Lahti.
The book that inspired the movie was discussed in several articles that appeared in Good Housekeeping magazine in the late 1990's.
