TV show description:
This legal drama takes a look at how people struggle with weighing their personal morals with their professional ambitions.

Christine Rosa (Marin Ireland) is an impassioned case worker with The Innocence Initiative. She delves into the case of a death-row inmate who she believes was wrongly convicted of a young family’s heinous murder 11 years earlier.

Christine chases down new evidence in a search of the truth and confronts an equally passionate district attorney, Adam Page (Damon Gupton). His personal view of justice is colored by shades of gray.

As the story progresses, 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.

This is the third show in one year I’ve really loved, and told all my family and friends to watch, that’s been cancelled after only one season- the other two being The Lottery and Benched. Of the three, this cancellation shocks me the most. I honestly can’t imagine a single reason this series was cancelled (after being renewed, no less) other than the fact that it aired on a network its target audience rarely, if ever, watches. If networks want higher ratings (especially networks like WE that aren’t even on the map as far as most people are concerned) they need to invest even a modest amount of time and money in promoting their series.

Who could have predicted 10 years ago that an obscure network like AMC would become the juggernaut it is today? The network heads gambled on the idea that if they aired really high quality series, word would spread, and they would slowly but steadily draw a massive audience. And the gamble paid off, big time. Other networks need to follow suit if they don’t want to lose what’s left of their viewers to online streaming.

Please renew this series and give it a real chance to develop a fan base!

I like the way you think, and you are an excellent writer. I too am shocked that this well-written, thought-provoking, moving, and exciting show was cancelled. It also had wonderful acting, and it was compelling to see so many actors of color getting broad, juicy roles. I don’t know what happens to the comments on this site. Are they forwarded to the network? To the show’s producers? I would love to get a letter-writing campaign started to WE — or to another network that might consider picking up the show — to see if we can get it renewed. It’s really such a loss to television.

If there is a letter writing campaign you can count me in. It is about time they stop showing those trashy realty programs.

Count me in, definitely! The Divide was originally renewed, so I’m assuming production had already started. WE just needs to pass the baton to another network, or even Netflix.

I hope you don’t mind; I took your idea and ran with it:

My husband, a TV and film producer, says, “Concentrate your energies on the studio that made it — AMC Studios (Sundance Network) — and the network that you think would be better for it.” Sara, I’m thrilled you started the change.org petition. Signing immediately!

Awesome! Thanks! :D

Sara,
That was an excellent idea! I signed and hope it will garner additional signatures.

Me too! Thanks for signing! :D

Not too many nibbles on the petition so far. My guess is that many, if not most fans don’t even know The Divide has been cancelled yet. WE gave every indication it was renewing the series, so my guess is that the outcry won’t really start until enough people try to find out when Season 2 is airing. I’ve set up a Twitter page in the meantime.

Sara, I put it on my fb page (but I only have like a 100 “friends”), and asked my husband to do the same (he has 1,300 plus “friends”). I think everyone here needs to promote the petition via social media. Please.

Keeba March 19, 2015 at 3:00 pm

You are both correct. The last show/season indicated that it was returning so perhaps people are not aware.
I too am lacking enough friends and followers on both FB and Twitter but will ask family and friends to post the link on their pages.

Sara Brigham March 20, 2015 at 8:29 pm

I’ve definitely spotted a pattern here! I only have 23 FB friends and this is the first time I’ve done anything on Twitter. (It seemed like the time to finally try to figure it out.) I’m also looking into other ways to promote it (I told my mom she should screen it for her social justice group at her church). Every single vote counts.
