'Good Fight' Creators Robert and Michelle King Extend CBS Overall Deal
The creators of The Good Fight will keep fighting at their longtime home.
Robert and Michelle King have renewed their overall deal with CBS Television Studios for three more years. CBS will have exclusive rights to content developed via their King Size Productions; Liz Glotzer, president of King Size, will be an executive producer on all their projects.
"Robert and Michelle are two of the finest persons I have ever had the privilege of working with," David Stapf, president of CBS Television Studios, said Tuesday in a statement. "Their brilliant writing and ability to create distinctive, successful television is only surpassed by their quality as people. Everyone at CBS TV Studios is thrilled and very proud to be working with them, Liz and their team for many more years."
Added the Kings: "We couldn't be more delighted to continue our relationship with the fantastic people at CBS Studios. David Stapf has assembled a team of some of the smartest, most thoughtful and supportive executives in the business. Working with them is a dream."
The Good Fight, a spinoff of the duo's former CBS drama The Good Wife, is headed for a third season on CBS All Access. King Size is also producing Your Honor from Peter Moffat (Silk, Criminal Justice) for Showtime and developing another project, Evil, for the cabler. The latter follows a skeptical psychologist, a priest in training and a contractor as they investigate possible miracles, demonic possessions and other unexplained phenomena.
For CBS All Access, the Kings are writing and executive producing Girls With Guns, a long-gestating project about two sisters whose family moves to Israel, the only country in the world that drafts women into its military.
Robert and Michelle King are repped by Paradigm and attorneys Jon Moonves, Jeff Finkelstein and Jean Tanaka.
