The Good Wife, CBS Tuesdays, is off to a good start. ER's Julianna Margulies, whose last role in a series, Canterbury's Law~never got off the ground, takes a chance with another lawyer role in this season's political/courtroom drama.
Margulies stars as Alicia Florrick, humiliated wife of Chicago prosecutor Peter Florrick, Mr. Big~John Preston~the ever so fabulous and still in style, Chris Noth, who has just landed himself in jail under a cloud of political and sexual scandals. In order to support her two children, Alicia returns to the workforce as a defense attorney in a prestigious law firm. Josh Charles, Matt Czuchry (Gilmore Girls) and Christine Baranski round of this cast.
I wasn't surprised equally as much as I was surprised to see Tony and Ridley Scott on the credits.
The show takes place in Chicago, but as far as I know is shot right here in Los Angeles, so keep your eye out for palm trees, CA plates, and skinny pizza. ;0)
I can recommend this to anyone who likes a good scandal and a courtroom drama.
