In its third season, Good Wife still manages to lure more than 11.5 million viewers and a 2.5 rating among the coveted 18 to 49-year-old demographic in its competitive Sunday night slot. The legal drama, which earned Margulies an Emmy, was renewed for a fourth season last month.

Having met while working at the same shoe store many years earlier, Good Wife marks the Kings' first stint overseeing a staff after years of medoerate success in features and off-and-on TV collaborations including their first short-lived stab at a legal drama, Kyle MacLachlan's In Justice on ABC.

The Kings are repped by Paradigm and Del Shaw.
