The HBO deal will bring the CBS All Access original to Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.

CBS Corp.'s CBS Studios International has struck two more international licensing deals for CBS All Access original series The Good Fight with HBO Nordic and India's Zee Entertainment Enterprises.

All 10 episodes of the first season of the drama, a spinoff of The Good Wife, will become available on HBO Nordic on June 1 in an exclusive Scandinavian deal. HBO Nordic is available in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.

The deal with Zee, which is also the Indian home of The Good Wife, is for the exclusive pay TV rights in India. It will air on the company's Zee Cafe, whose slogan is "All Eyes on New" as it promises high-quality English-language entertainment.

"The Good Fight delivers the same powerful storylines and high-quality production values as its predecessor and has premiered to terrific critical acclaim in the U.S.," said Barry Chamberlain, president of sales at CBS Studios International. 

Aparna Bhosle, business head of Zee's premium and free-to-air cluster, said: "We have had a very successful partnership with CBS Studios International with the popular drama The Good Wife, and the critically acclaimed spinoff, The Good Fight, has all the ingredients of being an equally power-packed series."

The drama starts a year after the events of The Good Wife. Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) resigns from her law firm and prepares to write her memoirs from France, while her goddaughter (Rose Leslie) is beginning her career as a first-year associate at Diane’s firm. Suddenly an enormous financial scandal caused by the goddaughter's parents (Bernadette Peters and Paul Guilfoyle), brings down liberal Chicago and leaves Diane broke. 

The show is from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King and is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions. The Good Fight is distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International.
