Nia Long seems to be having an amazing 2013 thanks to reprising her role as Jordan in The Best Man crew for its sequel, The Best Man Holiday, which has been a smash hit at box office since its release this past November. Now, the Brooklyn-born actress is keeping the ball rolling with a role in WE tv’s first scripted television series!

That’s right, guys. Our girl Nia is coming back to TV and this time, she’s going to be putting her dramatic skills to work on WE tv’s first original scripted series, The Divide, a thriller that follows a caseworker and District Attorney who discover new evidence in a sensational murder case.

Nia’s set to play Billie Page, District Attorney Adam Page (played by Damon Gupton)’s “hard-charging” wife. Season one of the show will consist of 10 one-hour episodes, and of course, we can’t wait to see the 43-year-old mother of two come back to TV.

We’re pretty excited for the show — especially since we learned that Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn (aka President Fitz) co-created and executive produced it!

The Divide is scheduled to air in 2014.
