We know that there were many excited to see if “The Good Wife” would actually spawn an official spin-off show; now, we actually know for certain that it is going to be happening.
Today, with it of course being the same day as the CBS upfront, the network confirmed that a new series starring Christine Baranski (Diane Lockhart) and Cush Jumbo (Lucca Quinn) will be premiering on the CBS All Access platform at some point in the spring. In a statement, David Stapf, President of CBS Television Studios, had the following to say:
“The quality of The Good Wife has always rivaled anything on television and we’re excited to tell more stories with some of the brilliant characters Robert and Michelle King created.”
The Kings were supposedly set to help write the pilot; Phil Alden Robinson (“Field of Dreams”) has been hired as a new executive producer. It’ll be interesting to see precisely how this show works, and if it can bring people to the network’s streaming platform in a way that they have not been to date. For now, it appears as though it’ll be a boost given that the All Access platform for now has just been known for the “Big Brother” live feeds and also the ability to watch past episodes of other CBS shows.
“The Good Wife” franchise is the second to come to CBS All Access; after all, the network is also looking to bring a revival to “Star Trek” from Bryan Fuller to the service in the future.
