Internal struggles, the realities of an unforgiving landscape, and the need to reconcile a long-ago tragedy collide to create the backdrop for this classic American Western.
Written by Jana Brown with actor/director Perry King, The Divide was filmed in El Dorado County, Calif., in the summer of 2015. 

About Perry King
Actor/director Perry King has been a fixture in Hollywood for nearly 45 years. He is perhaps best known for his role in the 1980s television series Riptide, on which he played detective Cody Allen. He has appeared in dozens of films, television movies, TV shows, and plays, including The Day After Tomorrow, The Lords of Flatbush, and Slaughterhouse-Five. Perry was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his role in the TV movie The Hasty Heart. He’s been featured in recurring television roles on Melrose Place and Spin City.
It was Perry’s role in the 1998 made-for-TV movie The Cowboy and the Movie Star, which co-starred Sean Young, that inspired him to shift gears. Perry says he decided after shooting Cowboy that he wanted to be his character from the film – a rancher seeking solace in his livelihood and his land. Not long after filming the movie, Perry purchased a 500-acre cattle ranch in the Sierra Nevada, splitting his time between the bustle of Los Angeles and the serenity of Northern California. He long dreamt of filming a Western on his own land. The ranch’s location in the heart of Gold Country, known locally as “the divide,” provided the ideal setting for such aspirations.
In 2011, Perry met Jana Brown, a writer based in Concord, New Hampshire, and the two developed an immediate collaborative friendship. From that connection came the idea, the development, and the screenplay for The Divide. The script was in development from 2012, until the movie was filmed in the summer of 2015.
