THE DIVIDE follows District Attorney Adam Page, played by Damon Gupton, who discovers new evidence that reopens a big-time murder case. Long will play Billie Page, Adam's wife.

Long last appeared on the big screen in The Best Man Holiday and will next be seen in The Single Moms Club.

Her TV credits include House of Lies, The Cleveland Show, Big Shots, Boston Legal, Third Watch, Judging Amy, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and more.

About THE DIVIDE: From AMC Studios and the makers of The Walking Dead comes WE tv's first scripted series - The Divide.

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.

As an impassioned case worker with The Innocence Initiative, Christine Rosa delves into the case of a death-row inmate she believes was wrongly convicted of a young family's heinous murder 11 years earlier. She chases down new evidence in a search for the truth and confronts an equally passionate district attorney, Adam Page, whose view of justice is colored by shades of gray. Throughout the journey, Christine and Adam's pasts resurface as they are faced with the question of one man's guilt or innocence intertwined with their own personal histories.

Marin Ireland will co-star with Damon Gupton. Ireland hails from the legit stage with many critically-acclaimed television performances (Homeland, The Killing, Law & Order, Mildred Pierce). There to counteract her every move is Gupton as Adam Page (Prime Suspect, Deadline). The cast also includes Joe Anderson (Across the Universe, The Grey, The River), Aunjanue Ellis (Ray, The Help, The Mentalist), Clarke Peters (The Wire, Treme, Person of Interest) and Paul Schneider (Lars and the Real Girl, Water for Elephants, Parks and Recreation).
