In their first stab at development since creating The Good Wife, Robert and Michelle King have set up Girls With Guns, a drama project at Showtime that will be produced by the companies behind The Good Wife, CBS TV Studios and Scott Free Prods. It was one of the projects in the works at Scott Free when one of the company principles, Tony Scott, died tragically 10 days ago. Another one is a drama from Joan Of Arcadia creator Barbara Hall, which has received a script commitment from CBS. Scott’s brother and producing partner, Ridley Scott, will executive both projects with Scott Free’s David Zucker.

Written and executive produced by the Kings, Girls With Guns is a drama about two Los Angeles sisters whose family moves to the one place in the world where women are drafted into the military – Israel. This marks the first project for Paradigm-repped Robert and Michelle King under their new overall deal with CBS TV Studios.

The untitled Barbara Hall project, also from CBS TV Studios, revolves around three generations of empowered women who all live together under one roof. Hall is writing and executive producing.

Emmys The Good Wife
Diane Haitman contributes to Deadline’s TV coverage.

Robert King, co-creator of CBS’ The Good Wife with wife Michelle King, called star Julianna Margulies’ 2011 Emmy win for best actress in a drama series the highlight of their year. When you lose the Emmy competition, Robert jokes, “you dismiss the awards and say those don’t matter anyway. And then when you win, it’s ‘damn right – everything’s right with the universe.’ Everybody understands art.”

The series is already lobbying hard for another Emmy win in 2012. This year, TV Academy voters are receiving seven Good Wife episodes in their mailers, rather than the average 2-4 episodes sent by most network shows. “It’s a nice problem The Good Wife Castto have, when you have so many good episodes,” says CBS TV Studios president David Stapf. “And with the ability to send out more now, why not?”

The show’s third season has brought good and not-so-good things to The Good Wife. On the good side: the Emmy for Margulies (co-star Archie Punjabi won in the supporting actress category in 2010) and the recent announcement that the show has been picked up for a fourth season by CBS. Read More »
