Actress Nia Long has joined the cast of WEtv’s first original scripted series, “The Divide.”
Long’s character is Billie Page, the hard-nosed wife of the district attorney. The show will follow the DA who uncovers new evidence that prompts the reinvestigation of a sensational murder case.
WeTv’s description of the show reads:
“The Divide’ is an exploration of personal morality and how all people – especially ambitious people – struggle with the shades of gray found in the absence of a simple, ordered moral universe. The show probes how truth coexists in the modern justice system alongside ambition, ethics, politics and race.”
Shooting in underway in Toronto.
Long can be seen in Malcolm D. Lee’s “The Best Man Holiday” movie, and on Showtime television’s “House of Lies.”
