The upcoming fourth season of CBS All Access’ “The Good Fight” will deal with the issues of “big mergers” and, as usual, politics according to co-creator Robert King during the show’s TCA panel earlier today.
King says that on the second day of the writers room for the new episodes, Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump and so the season will begin with Trump still the reigning POTUS.
King further explains how the fourth season sees the Reddick Boseman law firm being affected by how the business universe of America is merging:
“Obviously, Disney/Fox, Viacom/CBS, everything is becoming a bigger conglomerate. Obviously the law firm was on such bad straits they’ve been bought by a very large international law firm.
They took a yearbook shot of their lawyers and realized there’s no African American faces in it. There is this, what we’re calling ‘The Overlords’, there is this large conglomerate that has bought them up and created a new working space…with a staircase that goes up to a Nirvana universe.
They basically, it’s our people that controlled their own fates now being underdogs, being in controlled by other people. It feels like it reflects what’s going on now. What’s described as synergy, means you’re f—ed, you’re laid off. We’re all agitated by this large gathering together of Amazon forces.”
King also says the possibility of Julianna Margulies reprising her role as Alicia Florrick is still there despite the pay dispute with CBS All Access last spring.
