The spinoff will be focusing on Christine Baranski’s character Diane Lockhart, which is said to be little lighter in tone than the mothership drama and take place one year after the events of The Good Wife’s series finale. The premise for the spinoff is as follows:
An enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
The report doesn’t state what role Tazel will play in the upcoming series. She will be joining a cast that includes Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Sarah Steele, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Paul Guilfoyle and Bernadette Peters.
