The Good Fight: The Good Wife spin-off gets name, production begins

Posted on


Production has started in New York City on the much-anticipated spin-off of The Good Wife, which is set to premiere on CBS All Access in February.

And the series, written by Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, finally has a name: The Good Fight. (Scroll down for a look at the official logo.)

The show will star Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele, Paul Guilfoyle, Bernadette Peters, and Erica Tazel. After kicking off with a special broadcast on CBS, The Good Fight will move to All Access.

The Good Fight will pick up one year after the events of the final broadcast of the CBS show that aired May 8. In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
