Created by Robert and Michelle King,"The Good Wife" stars Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry and Josh Charles :
"...lawyer 'Alicia Florrick' (Margulies), returns to her old job as a litigator to provide for her two children after her husband 'Peter' (Chris Noth), a former Cook County state's attorney, is jailed following a public sex and corruption scandal..."
The series was partly inspired by the Eliot Spitzer prostitution scandal, as well as by other prominent American political sex scandals, including John Edwards and Bill Clinton.
"What’s interesting about a lot of these political scandals is that the women are lawyers, too," said series co-creator Michelle King. "Hillary Clinton is a lawyer. Elizabeth Edwards is a lawyer. I think that got us thinking along those lines. That is, we knew she had to go back to work, and we had so many female lawyers to draw on."
The third season of "The Good Wife", from Scott Free Productions, King Size Productions, CBS Television Studios and CBS Productions, debuts September 25, 2011.
