Robert and Michelle King are continuing their good relationship with CBS.
The husband and wife team have signed a new three-year deal to continue as executive producers and showrunner on the hit series The Good Wife. In addition, the new agreement has the Kings developing a new comedy-horror series for the studio. CBS has made a put-pilot commitment to Brain Dead, described as an hourlong comedic horror series set in the world of D.C. politics — in other words, “The West Wing meets The Strain.” The series will reunite the entire team of The Good Wife, with the Kings as writers and executive producers and Scott Free producing alongside CBS TV Studios for the CBS network.
Coming off an explosive fifth season and second Emmy win for star Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife will return on CBS on Sunday, September 21.
