In addition, a special broadcast preview of the premiere will air on the CBS Television Network that same night, Sunday, Feb.19 at 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT. After premiere night, all new episodes will be available weekly on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers.
“CBS All Access has built tremendous momentum in the past year – passing one million subscribers, launching our first original with ‘Big Brother: Over the Top’ and, most recently, bringing live ‘NFL on CBS’ programming to the service,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive. “We’re continuing this momentum with the upcoming launch of ‘The Good Fight’ which promises to not only deliver more ambitious premium programming for our subscribers but an opportunity for world-class creators like Robert and Michelle King to push the envelope in new ways.”
The Good Fight picks up one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of The Good Wife. In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia Rindell, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor and godmother Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
The series, from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Sarah Steele, Paul Guilfoyle, Bernadette Peters, Justin Bartha and Erica Tazel. (source)

For the past weeks I’ve been working on improving the career page, and you can now find a detailed page for each project Rose was involved inHERE(films, tv shows, radio & voice work, theatre, and music videos) with informations, details, on set pictures, stills, trailers, and more ! I hope it will be useful to you ; I always try to make the site and career page as complete as possible so the projects’ pages might be completed in the future and it will obviously be updated as soon as new informations get released on Rose’s latest projects !
I have also made several additions in the gallery including old new pictures or pictures missing in the gallery that got lost when I changed the site’s gallery a few months ago. New categories have been added : « Behind the scenes » in the Photoshoot one where you can find all behind the scenes pictures of Rose’s photoshoot, and a « Screencaps » category with all screencaps I have taken from various videos of Rose. Screencaps from Downton Abbey episodes were also missing and I finally added them ! Here are all the new pictures :
Rose is currently in New York and she attended the 2016 Princess Grace Awards Gala yesterday evening along with Harry Santa-Olalla, the president of a fundraising technology company helping charities to raise more money. The Princess Grace Awards is a national program dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging theater, dance, and film artists who are at the outset of their careers or at early stages of professional development. Rose looked gorgeous with her shorter hair and in a blue and black ensemble !
The two part series, which will be shown on TV this Christmas, will feature an all-star cast, including David Walliams and Rob Brydon.
Revolting Rhymes, written in 1982 by Roald Dahl, is a collection of six witty rhymes which retell classic fairy tales with playful twists and surprising endings. Animation studio Magic Light Pictures has now animated five of these for the BBC.
The chosen stories are Little Red Riding Hood, Snow-White, Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella.
Walliams and Brydon will play various roles in the show, including voicing the Ugly Sisters, as well as Jack’s Mother and the King respectively. Meanwhile Friday Night Dinner star Tamsin Greig will lend her voice to the roles of the Babysitter and Miss Maclahose.
Other stars include Bertie Carvel, who plays both the Magic Mirror and the Prince; Gemma Chan as Snow White; Rose Leslie as Red Riding Hood; Isaac Hempstead Wright as Jack; and Bel Powley as Cindy. (source)
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie has joined the upcoming CBS All Access drama as a series regular, it was announced Wednesday.
Leslie will play Maia, Diane’s goddaughter who joins her firm just after passing the bar, and is a key part of Diane’s plan for the future.
“We’re thrilled to have Rose on board,” showrunners Robert and Michelle King said. “We needed a young actress who could hold her own with Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo, and Rose is perfect. She’s real, she’s strong and she can play comedy. If we designed an actress from the ground up, we couldn’t have done better.”
In addition to Baranski and Jumbo, who were both series regulars on the flagship series, Leslie also joins spinoff cast member Sarah Steele. Steele, who recurred for six of the drama’s seven seasons as Eli’s daughter (and Alicia’s body woman), Marissa Gold.
The still-untitled spinoff will center around an enormous financial scam that has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, Diane joins Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.
The 10-episode first season was originally set to premiere on CBS All Access sometime in spring 2017, following the January launch of the streamer’s first original scripted series, Star Trek: Discovery. However, last month CBS All Access bumped Star Trek back to May and pushed the premiere of The Good Wife offshoot to February. The first episode of the spinoff will now also premiere first on CBS.
The Kings, who created the original series, also came onboard as showrunners last month. They will exec produce with Phil Alden Robinson, who co-wrote the premiere with the Kings, as well as Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy and Alison Cross also serve as executive producers. Like the original series, CBS Television Studios will produce in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions. (source)
The 60th BFI London Film Festival is underway and it has appeared that Rose is involved in a movie screened this year, « Letters from Baghdad », a documentary about the life of Gertrude Bell directed by Sabine Krayenbühl and Zeva Oelbaum. Bell was a pioneering English writer, archaeologist, diplomat and spy whose travels through the Arabian desert gave her local knowledge unparalleled by her British peers. Recruited by British Military Intelligence after World War I, she played a significant – often unrecognised – role in British imperial policy-making in the Middle East, notably Iraq. (source)
Rose voiced the young Gertrude and Tilda Swinton the old Gertrude.
A first screening was planned yesterday (October 9) and a second one will take place today. You can learn more about the movie here.
Rose called Absolute Radio today to chat with host Christian O’Connell for « Who’s Calling Christian » (a competition in which celebrities call for the chance to win £20,000 towards the charity of their choice). She gave a short interview and talked about Anthony Nolan, a charity she’s been involved in for years. You can listen to her interview here :
