July 16 TV Picks: ‘The Divide’ on WE
TV picks for Wednesday, July 16, 2014, include “The Divide” on WE, “Extant” on CBS and “The Bridge” on FX.
Co-produced by Tony Goldwyn (“Scandal”) and Richard LaGravenese (“The Fisher King”), this new mystery/thriller is the first scripted series for the WE network. Things kick off with a slam-bang pilot that draws the viewer into the life of a case worker (Marin Ireland) with the Innocence Initiative who tries to overturn an 11 year-old murder conviction. There’s great writing and acting everywhere you turn (with Goldwyn behind the camera as director), and after watching the premiere, you may be more than impatient waiting for a new episode. Two-hour series premiere, 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 16, on WE (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
