The "best new drama of the season" (Los Angeles Times) is headlined by Julianna Margulies in her Golden Globe®-winning* role as a woman who boldly assumes full responsibility for her life and her family by re-entering the workforce and pursuing her original career as a defense attorney at a prestigious Chicago law firm. After 13 years out of the courtroom, Alicia has her work cut out for her when competing with a twentysomething, recent Harvard graduate for the firm's one full-time associate position. A sensational family drama, THE GOOD WIFE follows Alicia's transformation into a resilient career woman as she takes control of her destiny for the first time.
Co-starring Christine Baranski, Josh Charles, Archie Panjabi and Matt Czuchry, the second-highest rated new scripted show of the season features an array of notable guest stars including Chris Noth, Alan Cumming, Gary Cole, David Paymer, Joe Morton and Dreama Walker.
