Tony Goldwyn's "The Divide" (WE tv's First Original Scripted Drama)

The eight-episode series is written by the Academy(R) Award nominated and Emmy(R) Award winning Richard LaGravenese (Behind the Candelabra, The Fisher King, Water for Elephants, The Ref, The Bridges of Madison County), co-created by LaGravenese and Tony Goldwyn (Scandal, Conviction, Justified, Damages, Dexter A Walk on the Moon) and produced by AMC Studios.

"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 Christine Rosa played by Marin Ireland (Homeland, Boss, Side Effects), an impassioned caseworker with The Innocence Initiative, and Adam Page played by Damon Gupton (The Newsroom, Prime Suspect), an equally passionate district attorney and political rising star. LaGravenese and Goldwyn also serve as executive producers along with Emmy(R) Award winner John Tinker (The Practice,Chicago Hope) as the showrunner, and co-executive producer, Andrew Sugarman (Shopgirl, Conviction). Drama also stars Nia Long (The Single Moms Club), Paul Schneider (Water for Elephants), Clark Peters (The Wire) and Joe Anderson (Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2).

Eleven years ago, the Butler family was attacked in their Philadelphia home and all but the youngest daughter were brutally murdered. The senseless deaths of this affluent African American family, seemingly at the hands of two white construction workers, Terry Kucik (Joe Anderson) and Jared Bankowski (Chris Bauer), threatened to ignite a racial firestorm in the City of Brotherly Love. Adam Page (Gupton), himself an affluent black man and the city's District Attorney as well as a political rising star, made a name for himself by securing convictions for both men, leading to the death penalty ruling for Bankowski. Now, Christine Rosa (Ireland), a caseworker with the Innocence Initiative, believes Bankowski was wrongly convicted of the heinous murders and struggles to stop his impending execution, while tirelessly working to exonerate Kucik.

In her search for the truth, Christine uncovers evidence that puts her at odds with Adam who will do everything in his power to uphold the verdict and keep his reputation intact. His actions put a strain on his marriage to Billie, played by Nia Long (The Single Moms Club, The Best Man Holiday, House of Lies), a powerhouse corporate attorney at a crossroads in her personal and professional life. Throughout the journey, all three of their pasts resurface as they are faced with the question of one man's guilt or innocence intertwined with their own personal histories.

The Divide also stars Paul Schneider (Water for Elephants, Family Stone) as Clarke Rylance, an old law school buddy of Adam and Billie's who chooses a different path when he signs on with The Innocence Initiative; Joe Anderson (Across the Universe and Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2) as Terry Kucik, who, as a young teen, is sentenced to life in prison for the brutal murder of the Butler family; and Clark Peters (The Wire, Treme) as Isaiah Page, Adam's father and Police Commissioner of Philadelphia.
