At the annual TCA tour, series star Julianna Margulies was asked about venturing into a new series so soon after her failed Fox series Canterbury's Law:
"For me, television is the medium for women. The richest characters I can find are on television. And it’s a lovely entry back into a place where, to now being be a mom and be able to play this role from a very different point of view, I never would have known the things that I know now back then. It’s a different phase of life."
'The Good Wife' Synopsis:
After being publicly humiliated by her husband's sexual and political scandal, Alicia Florrick tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered life by returning to her former career as a defense attorney. She lands a position as a junior associate at a prestigious Chicago law firm, but soon learns that she will have to battle with other 20-something recruits to land the one and only full-time associate position. Is there life after humiliation? Alicia Florrick is determined to get past her past and make it on her own.
