The Good Fight, CBS All Access's spinoff of The Good Wife, dropped a very surprising trailer.
"Fight" centers on "Wife" character Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), who becomes part of a different law firm.
CBS All Access offers next day streaming for new episodes of many popular shows and a library of over 8,500 on demand episodes, including content from current programs like "Limitless" and "Elementary, ' and classic series like 'Star Trek" and 'Cheers.' Likewise, customers in more than 150 markets across the USA - including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia - can watch live local CBS broadcasts through the app.
CBS dropped the first full trailer for the show on Monday, January 9.
"Halfway through the pilot, I lose everything, so I'm left scrambling", Baranski said.
Meanwhile, Variety writer Cynthia Littleton sees "Fight" as a good acquisition for CBS All Access. "We talked to Julianna about the show and her relationship with it, and we agreed that The Good Wife ended that story", Robert said.
The series is executive produced by couple Robert and Michelle King, who created the legal drama The Good Wife.
As Jumbo said, she was a fan of "The Good Wife" even before she joined the cast, and always admired how issues in the show were never simply black and white, but more complex.
CBS All Access is one of the paid streaming services now being offered by broadcast networks in the age of Netflix and Hulu.
Other upcoming CBS All Access exclusive series include 'Star Trek: Discovery,' which is set to premiere in May 2017. After that, each new episode will roll out weekly on the streaming service.
A scene in which Baranski's character puts into a box a photo of Hillary Clinton that had hung in her office during the Good Wife years, remarking that Clinton is going to be next POTUS, takes on an entirely different resonance, Baranski noted.
"The characters in the series are "elegant people, cultured", but they're going to use swear words you would have expected to hear" in such extreme situations, Michelle King said. "We have it on a loop at home", Robert King joked.
"Good Wife" actress Sarah Steele, who played Eli Gold's daughter, Marissa, returns in episode two of "The Good Fight" and will be a series regular.
"We've been watching a lot of cable and sometimes it's like they take it as a badge of honor that they can say [the f-word]", Robert King said.
