‘Good Wife’ duo wedded to CBS TV

Robert and Michelle King to continue shepherding drama, develop new projects

“The Good Wife” creators Robert and Michelle King are renewing their vows with the show.

The married showrunners have struck a rich new three-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios. Pact calls for them to remain at the helm of the CBS drama series and develop new projects for the studio.

“Good Wife” is in the home stretch of its third season, which has been lauded by crix as its best to date. The show made a timeslot move this season from Tuesdays at 10 p.m. to Sundays at 9 p.m., where it has averaged a solid 11.6 million viewers and respectable 2.5 rating/6 share in adults 18-49.

Star Julianna Margulies earned the Emmy last fall for lead drama actress, and the show has been nommed for best drama series for the past two years. It ranks among the few broadcast TV drama series to be a kudos contender among the edgier cable competish these days. And it is among a dwindling number of primetime dramas that deliver 22 episodes a season, compared to the cable standard of 13.

The Kings are repped by Paradigm and attorney Jon Moonves of Del Shaw.
