Tony Goldwyn -- aka POTUS from "Scandal" -- has a new show in the works now that the most recent season of the guilty-pleasure series starring Kerry Washington has wrapped. But he won't be acting. He's writing and producing. 

The new project is called "The Divide," and Goldwyn collaborated with Richard LaGravenese ("Behind the Candelabra"). It centers on an Innocence Initiative caseworker (Marin Ireland of "Homeland") who's fighting to halt the nearing execution of a Death Row inmate (Chris Bauer), wrongly accused of the murder of a family.

Goldwyn has focused on the Innocence Project for years now; he directed 2010's "Conviction," starring Hilary Swank as a woman who puts herself through law school to come to the defense of her imprisoned brother.

Here's the trailer for "The Divide":

    I've been wondering when we'd get a premier date. This looks really good, though the subject matter reminds me of the latest season of The Killing and like it might have some similarities with Rectify.
