WE tv will debut its first original scripted series this July.
The Divide is being produced by AMC Studios. Written by Richard LaGravenese — who co-created and will executive produce with Tony Goldwyn — it tells the story of a woman trying to free a death-row inmate she believes to be wrongly convicted. John Tinker will serve as showrunner and also executive produce. Andrew Sugerman will serve as co-executive producer.
As part of its development slate, WE tv, helmed by Marc Juris since last October, also slotted in three new unscripted series: Made in Heaven, Mystery Millionaire and David Tutera’s CELEBrations.
Returning series include Kendra on Top, Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, andTamar & Vince.
The network also ordered a pilot for a one-hour unscripted relationship show starring Charlie Sheen, Charlie Sheen’s Bad Influence.
