About The Good Wife
When in the political eye, nothing is private. For most politicians, life is on display in much the same way it is for Alicia Florick and her husband, Peter. Supporting her husband after he admitted to sleeping with other women, including prostitutes, Alicia is The Good Wife. Peter is a former state attorney who was not only caught with his pants down but also accused of political corruption. Peter is found guilty, and after a humiliating trial, conviction, and subsequent incarceration, Alicia is left with the responsibility of providing for her family. After being a stay-at-home wife and mother for 13 years, Alicia returns to work as a lawyer, specialising in civil litigation. Beyond embarrassed and humiliated by the scandals, she throws herself into her professional career. The Good Wife is a legal drama created by Robert and Michelle King. The plot was inspired by real-life political sex scandals throughout the United States. The show follows Alicia as she juggles her career and teenage children. In the male-dominated legal trade, Alicia is not prepared to be docile; with clever tactics, legal prowess, and the tenacity of a lioness, she tackles her adversaries and emerges as a partner in a prestigious Chicago litigation firm. Even though her husband was released and later cleared of the corruption charges, Alicia continues to work as he rises back to his political power and aims for the governorship. As the two get to know each other again, will Alicia remain the good wife, or will she strike out and start over with someone else?
