A cable drama series has been canceled after one season. Marking the demise of the channel’s first attempt at scripted drama, WE tv pulled the plug on “The Divide,” Variety reports.
The series “revolved around a lawyer’s efforts to prove a death-row inmate was wrongfully convicted. The show was produced in-house by We and hailed from feature vet Richard LaGravenese and ‘Scandal’ star Tony Goldwyn, who wrote and directed the pilot, respectively. John Tinker served as showrunner and exec produced with LaGravenese and Goldwyn,” Variety reports.
In a statement, the network said: “We are extremely proud of ‘The Divide’ and grateful to its brilliant creators, Richard LaGravenese and Tony Goldwyn, and an amazing cast and crew, for bringing this story to life as WE tv’s first scripted series.”
The show premiered in July and had an eight-episode run. The channel has its second original drama, the supernatural thriller “South of Hell,” waiting in the wings.
