“The Good Wife” has been named one of AFI’s Top Television Shows, won the Television Critics Award for Outstanding Achievement in Drama and garnered five Emmy nominations and three Golden Globe nominations.

The drama stars Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, a disgraced wife who returns to work as a lawyer after her husband, Peter Florrick, is imprisoned following a scandal. After starting her own firm and finding success as a litigator alongside her colleagues Diane Lockhart and Cary Agos, Peter’s trusted advisor, Eli Gold, convinces Alicia to run for State’s Attorney, the position once infamously held by her husband.

Following a win at the polls after a hard-fought campaign, Alicia is forced to step down from office when voter fraud threatens the Democratic party in the state of Illinois. Now, with her political career over before it began and without a law firm to call her own, Alicia cautiously begins to practice law, becoming an attorney for arrestees seeking release on bail, with the assistance of Jason Crouse, a calm, experienced hourly investigator whom she hires.

In the course of her new job, she meets Lucca Quinn, a fellow lawyer who competes for her clients. And as Alicia tries to reinvent herself, Peter, now Governor of Illinois, contemplates a bid for the Presidency that may thrust her into the spotlight once again.

“The Good Wife” stars Julianna Margulies (Alicia Florrick), Christine Baranski (Diane Lockhart), Matt Czuchry (Cary Agos), Alan Cumming (Eli Gold), Zach Grenier (David Lee), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Jason Crouse), and Cush Jumbo (Lucca Quinn).

“The Good Wife” is produced by CBS Television Studios. The series is executive produced by Ridley Scott, Robert King, Michelle King, David Zucker, Brooke Kennedy, Craig Turk and Leonard Dick. It was created by Robert King and Michelle King.
