The Divide is about wrongful convictions. A man is scheduled to be executed for the murder of an African-American family in a predominantly white neighborhood of Philadelphia. The man on Death Row is white. We see how the conviction has divided people and how personal convictions can be wrongful in areas of ambition, race, politics, family ties and religion.
Obviously, what he learned doing Conviction, Tony Goldwyn applied to The Divide.
Watch that premiere episode. It's very good and I hope The Divide is a hit for We TV. As I wrote up top, when it comes to directing, Tony Goldwyn's got the gift.
