It’s the news we’ve been hoping for: Channel 4 has acquired from CBS Studios International the exclusive U.K. broadcast rights to the CBS All Access original series, The Good Fight for More4. The series is set to premiere on More4 this spring.
From The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, The Good Fight 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 (Rose Leslie – Game of Thrones), while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s (Christine Baranski – The Good Wife) savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo – The Good Wife) at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
Stephen Tague, SVP Europe, CBS Studios International said: “This is the first original series from our digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, CBS All Access, a platform that provides us with yet another opportunity to license our world-class, premium programming to the international marketplace. The Good Wife has been a ratings success for More4, so we are pleased for loyal fans of the series that the spin-off has found its U.K. home here.”
The series is currently on CBS streaming platform CBS: All Access in the US.
