WE tv is diving into new territory with its first scripted series, The Divide. Tony Goldwyn (Scandal) is the co-creator and director of The Divide, which also brings together stars Marin Ireland (Homeland), Damon Gupton (The Newsroom), Nia Long (The Best Man Holiday), Paul Schneider (Water for Elephants), Clark Peters (The Wire), and Joe Anderson (Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2). The premise for the show is described as follows:
“The Divide is a thought-provoking and suspenseful drama that explores the personal cost of morality, ambition, ethics, politics, and race in today’s justice system through the eyes of Christina Rosa … an impassioned caseworker with The Innocence Initiative, and Adam Page … an equally passionate district attorney and political rising star.”
At The Paley Center for Media’s presentation On the Beat: The Evolution of the Crime Drama Heroine, OHSOGRAY caught up with Marin Ireland and asked her about The Divide.
The Divide‘s special two-hour premiere airs July 16th at 9pm ET/PT on We tv, before moving to its regular time slot 10pm ET/PT beginning July 23rd.
