Thanks to Time Warner Cable’s primetime OnDemand, I was able to watch the first episode of WeTV’s new drama The Divide before it’s premiere this Wednesday, July 16th.
I was initially drawn to the show because Tony Goldwyn, our beloved president on Scandal, is one of the executive producers and the director. He has an impressive list of credits in the director role : Scandal, Justified, Dexter, Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy, and The L Word. So I figured this new show was worth a look.
And I was right.
The story centers on a prisoner who has been on death row for almost 12 years for the murder of an entire family. All appeals have failed, and he is scheduled to be executed in a matter of weeks when a member of the Innocence Initiative finds new evidence that may be enough for a new trial.
The cast is excellent, what I’ve seen of the writing is compelling, and Tony’s direction is top-notch. I’ve already set my DVR to record the entire series.
