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.”
Robert and Michelle King are showrunners and executive producers of The Good Fight. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions, and is distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International.
