The legal drama series is a spin-off of “The Good Wife” and takes place about a year after that series ended. Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) is pushed out of her law firm when a scam leaves her broke and ruins the reputation of her goddaughter Maia (Rose Leslie). The two women end up joining Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at a new firm and together they try getting back on their feet. The first season of the show follows Diane and Maia as they rise through the ranks and rebuild their careers, while also trying to solve the mystery of the case that destroyed their professional and personal lives. The series also serves as commentary to America’s contemporary political climate, dealing with issues that go from institutional racism to Trump’s election.
