The Plot

Elsbeth is a spin-off from The Good Wife universe and follows the unconventional attorney, Elsbeth Tascioni, as she chases new life goals in her dream city of New York. After a successful career in Chicago, Elsbeth now works alongside the NYPD to corner brilliant criminals and make unique observations. In the first case of the series, Elsbeth investigates a suicide which she suspects is actually a murder.

The trailer for Elsbeth reveals a police procedural series with Elsbeth’s antics on full display. Her unique point of view and astute observations are what make this character stand out, and fans of the franchise are in for a treat. It will be interesting to see how the series balances Elsbeth’s attitude with the nature of her profession.

The Cast and Crew

Elsbeth stars Carrie Preston as the titular character, alongside Wendell Pierce as Captain C.W. Wagner and Carra Patterson as Officer Kaya Blanke. Jonathan Tolin serves as the showrunner, while Robert King directs from a script he co-wrote with Michelle King. The Kings and Liz Glotzer also serve as executive producers.

CBS’s New Direction

Elsbeth was one of two series ordered by CBS earlier this year as the company rethinks its strategies under new entertainment president Amy Reisenbach. With the fewest number of drama pilots ordered so far by the giant, Elsbeth was one of the first few bets the broadcaster took in the new direction.
