Nia Long Stars in WeTV’s First Scripted Series


Nia Long

Coming off the success of The Best Man’s Holiday, NiaLong keeps the ball rolling nabbing a lead role on WETv. The Divide is WETv’s first scripted series, and the first of a few. WETv says “the show probes how truth coexists in the modern justice system alongside ambition, ethics, politics and race.”

Nia Long plays Billie Page, a partner at a successful equity firm and the wife of the district attorney. The role was originally cast for actress, Aunjanue Ellis, but was then passed to Ms. Long. Along with her work on House of Lies and starring in Tyler Perry’s The Single Mom’s Club, 2014 is shaping up to be a great year for Nia.
