Plot Synopsis

Created by Abi Morgan, THE SPLIT is a one-hour drama series that explores modern marriage and the legacy of divorce, as seen through the lens of the Defoes -- a family of female lawyers at the heart of London's emotionally-charged divorce circuit. Leading divorce lawyer Hannah Stern has walked out on the family firm Defoe's to join rival company Noble & Hale. She now faces her sister Nina and mother Ruth, also successful family lawyers, on the opposing side of high-profile divorce cases. Multi-millionaire Sportswear mogul Davey McKenzie and his childhood sweetheart Goldie embark on a painful divorce and a wrangle for control of the family business. And in a bitter custody battle Rex Pope, a well-known stand-up comedian, takes on his angry estranged wife and former comedy agent. When their father Oscar returns after a 30-year absence, Hannah, Nina and youngest sister Rose are thrown into turmoil. Meanwhile at Noble & Hale Hannah has uncharacteristically placed herself back in the orbit of old flame, fellow lawyer Christie Carmichael. As the past resurfaces, Hannah, for so long adept at navigating other people's lives and relationships, is confronted with questions and painful revelations about her own. THE SPLIT had its U.S. premiere on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT on SundanceTV.
On Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 11pm ET/PT, SundanceTV premiered the season finale of THE SPLIT. Maya arrives in London; the family tries to heal past divisions and celebrate the future as Hannah and Nathan fight to save their marriage; Goldie finally has her day in court.
