The We TV drama series The Divide follows Christine Rosa (Marin Ireland), a whip-smart caseworker with a knack for getting herself in and out of trouble, and Adam Page (Damon Gupton), the youngest Da in the history of Philadelphia, both on opposite sides of a case where the outcome could either protect or destroy their reputations. Created by Tony Goldwyn and Richard Lagravenese, the show also stars Nia Long, Paul Schneider, Joe Anderson and Clarke Peters. During this exclusive interview with Collider, executive producers Tony Goldwyn (who also directed the pilot) and Richard Lagravenese talked about how they came to be working together, what drew them to the themes of this story, their road to getting this show on the air, re-shooting the original pilot (that was shot for AMC, before moving to We tv), setting up the show’s structure for future seasons, why it was so important to »

The Emmy Awards aren’t till Monday, Aug. 25, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Saturday, Aug. 23:
11:10 a.m. “Nashville’s” Rayna James is “a woman that we need to see in country music,” says honoree Callie Khouri at the Women Making History Event, presented by the National Women’s History Museum and Glamour Magazine, at the Skirball Center. (She also teases that the “Nashville” premiere is going to feature two live performances in the show.) She thinks it’s incredible to see more women directing TV and as showrunners. “Nashville” boasts a largely female writing staff and women in main storylines.
11:36 a.m. Sophia Bush, also being honored, stops to blush when her mom stands behind the press snapping photos »

It was a star-studded evening to remember as the annual Variety and Women in Film pre-Emmy celebration powered by Samsung Galaxy honoring the television nominees was held Saturday night at Gracias Madre on Melrose Avenue.
Partygoers dined on delicious vegan Mexican food and sipped cocktails al fresco sponsored by Crystal Light, and arrived at the party in Mercedes Benz S65 Amg Coupes.
The patio at the hip Mexican eatery on Melrose Avenue was packed with the industry’s biggest names. Laura Prepon was one of the first to arrive. Lizzy Caplan was bombarded with well-wishers predicting her win Monday night. Julianna Margulies and her husband, Keith Lieberthal, chatted with Anne Heche and James Tupper. The cast of “Scandal” — including Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Darby Stanchfield, Jeff Perry, and newly minted Emmy winner Joe Morton — was thrilled to reunite with Dan Bucatinsky, and took several selfies to commemorate the moment. »

The Emmy Awards aren’t till Monday, Aug. 25, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Friday, Aug. 22:
6:35 p.m. “Classy” is a good word to describe “The Good Wife,” and it’s the perfect adjective to describe the early evening reception that CBS threw at Il Cielo to toast the show and its nommed stars: Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles and Christine Baranski. The gathering on the private patio next to the restaurant was intimate and relaxed. And the Burton Way eatery lived up to its reputation for incredible pasta dishes.
6:40 p.m. “Good Wife” creators/showrunners Robert and Michelle King are too classy to dwell on the fact that the show was not nominated in the top drama series despite universal accolades for its fifth season. »

We TV is moving up the launch date of its image makeover. The AMC Networks cabler is formally dropping the “Women’s Entertainment” tag as it shifts to targeting a broader, younger audience with edgier reality shows and more scripted series.
In the edgier reality show category is “Sex Box,” a reality show that features couples receiving relationship counseling from a panel of experts — after they’ve been intimate in a (camera-free) box. Series, based on a U.K. format, is targeted to premiere early next year.
“Our featured couples will get a once-in-a-lifetime experience, while our viewers will get the kind of bold, break-through-the-clutter programming they increasingly associate with We TV,” We TV prexy Marc Juris said.
The We TV rebrand had been set to appear Oct. 1. But after meetings this month in Los Angeles with producers and other creatives working for the network, Juris decided to move up »

Fans of Kerry Washington and former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha may be waiting patiently for that very first picture of baby Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha. But for Scandal stars Tony Goldwyn and Bellamy Young, they've been lucky enough to see the precious little one up-close. "Yes I have met the delectable Isabelle," Goldwyn told E! News at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmys. "Her DNA is really good and she's just the cutest." Young couldn't help but agree and even compared the baby to Buddha. "You hold that baby and it calms you down," she told E! News. "There is nothing annoying about that presence." The Neutrogena spokeswoman gave birth at Cedars-Sinai »
Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? Tom Hardy stars as a construction foreman who's driving to London to attend the birth of his child. You really shouldn't have stressful conversations on your cell while driving, but Ivan (Hardy) doesn't care. He has to make sure his big job tomorrow goes as planned, confess to his wife that he cheated on her with a co-worker, and coaching the aforementioned co-worker through the premature birth of their baby. Yikes.
Why We're In: Hardy is more than capable of commanding the screen for the entirety of the movie. Although you hear other characters' voices, it's all Hardy, all the time. Who could argue with that?

The Ya (Young Adult) boom is in full swing, with multiple proposed franchise starters thrust into cinemas at lightning speed. In terms of market availability, this isn’t The Hunger Games, this is stuffed to bursting. One of the more promising films, at least based on the box office numbers and potential for a sequel, is Divergent. It’s got a neat idea that relates to the young, it has stars filling out all the roles, and it mixes action and romance in equal measure. It’s almost enough to make you forget that the »

The old adage says behind every powerful man is a strong woman, but the opposite also rings true for the Emmy-nominated lead actresses who are playing complex characters juggling leadership roles and personal lives.
From Kerry Washington’s D.C. fixer in ABC’s “Scandal” and Lizzy Caplan’s sex researcher in Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” to Robin Wright’s manipulative first lady in Netflix’s “House of Cards,” Julianna Margulies’ upwardly mobile lawyer in CBS’ “The Good Wife,” and, yes, Amy Poehler’s local politician in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” the characters these women embody have strong male counterparts who may support them but don’t really define them.
Even the title of Margulies’ series, “The Good Wife,” has become what seems like an intentional distraction from the way her character has evolved over the past five seasons. Not only has Alicia Florrick become a formidably talented, »

Scandal's Bellamy Young hopes Olivia Pope and President Fitz Grant don't get a happy ending. The 44-year-old actress - who plays Fitz's scorned wife, the First Lady of the United States, Mellie Grant - has admitted she doesn't want her on-screen husband (played by Tony Goldwyn) to sail off into the sunset with his mistress, played by Kerry Washington, when the series ends.

I'd like to think of Olivia as something Fitz will get over, I like to »
Those who watched last week’s twisty premiere of WEtv’s new scripted drama, The Divide, know that Innocence Initiative case worker Christina (Homeland’s Marin Ireland) is full of surprises—for example, she drives around Philly singing along to Mos Def’s “Quiet Dog.”
“That was Richard Lagravenese’s pick. He just had a feeling that that is exactly the kind of music she would listen to. Of course it’s like the fastest song in the world. They were like, ‘Can you just learn all the lyrics to this song? We don’t know what part we’re gonna use yet. »
