“Game of Thrones” alum Rose Leslie has joined the cast of CBS All Access’ “The Good Wife” spinoff series.
The new series will pick up one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of “The Good Wife.” In the series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia (Leslie), while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s (Baranski) savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn (Crush Jumbo) at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
“Good Wife” creators Robert and Michelle King will write and executive produce the spinoff. In addition, Ridley Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy and Alison Cross also serve as executive producers.
The show will premiere on CBS, in February, before moving over to CBS All Access exclusively, a move the media company is also making with its upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery” series.
