Production has commenced in New York City on The Good Fight, the new edition of The Good Wife, which will be available on CBS All Access, CBS’ subscription video on-demand and live streaming service. The series will premiere in February 2017 with a broadcast on the CBS Television Network, then move exclusively to CBS All Access.

Executive producer Brooke Kennedy is directing the premiere episode.

The Good Fight stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele, Paul Guilfoyle, Bernadette Peters, and Erica Tazel.

The series, according to press notes, “picks up one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of The Good Wife. … An enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.

Robert and Michelle King, creators and executive producers of The Good Wife, return as showrunners and executive producers of the new series. Phil Alden Robinson co-wrote and will executive produce the premiere episode with the Kings. Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy, and Alison Cross also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions.
