Scoop: Julianna Margulies eyes CBS drama
Julianna Margulies is heading back to court.
The ER vet has been tapped to headline the CBS drama pilot Good Wife, sources confirm to me semi-exclusively. The potential series focuses on a politician’s wife who pursues her original career as a defense attorney.
Margulies, who will slip back into Nurse Hathaway’s scrubs on ER next Thursday, is no doubt hoping Wife fares better than her last law-based series, Fox’s short-lived Canterbury’s Law. The Denis Leary-produced drama was axed after just six episodes.
Glad Margulies isn’t giving up her legal ambitions without a fight? Or is it time she moved on to another faux career? Comment away!
