Guests: Richard LaGravenese, Marissa Bluestine
In the new WeTV drama The Divide, creators Richard LaGravenese and Tony Goldwyn explore issues relating to justice, class and racial tension. The show was filmed in Philadelphia, which serves as an appropriate setting for the show, as the death penalty looms over the criminal justice system, and the city’s racial divide is palpable. We speak with co-creator, RICHARD LaGRAVENESE, who also is an executive producer and writer for the show. And we’ll be joined by MARISSA BLUESTINE, legal director at the Pennsylvania Innocence Project, who helped the writers develop an accurate depiction of the process of proving the innocence of a Pennsylvania death-row inmate.
