Elsbeth is an astute but unconventional attorney who utilizes her singular point of view to make unique observations and corner brilliant criminals alongside the NYPD. The Good Wife once dedicated an entire episode to exploring the inner workings of her brilliant mind.
After leaving her successful legal career in Chicago to tackle a new investigative role in New York City, Elsbeth finds herself jockeying with the toast of the NYPD, Captain C.W. Wagner (Wendell Pierce), a charismatic and revered leader. Working alongside Elsbeth is Officer Kaya Blanke (Carra Patterson), a stoic and ethical officer who quickly develops an appreciation for Elsbeth’s insightful and offbeat ways.
In the premiere, when a college theater student is mysteriously found dead in her high-rise New York City apartment, Elsbeth immediately suspects foul play and enters a game of wits against the victim’s popular theater director Alex Modarian (guest star Stephen Moyer) who she believes is involved. Throughout the evolution of the murder investigation, Elsbeth must balance her consent decree role with the NYPD and her uncommon methods to make her case and uncover the real killer.
Elsbeth was written by Robert King and Michelle King, who created The Good Wife, The Good Fight, and the horror drama Evil. Robert and Michelle executive produce the series alongside Jonathan Tolins (Schmigadoon!, East New York) and Liz Glotzer (The Mist, Faster), with Tolins serving as showrunner.
