The Good Wife

 

When a very public sex and political-corruption scandal lands her husband, Peter, in prison, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) must get past the humiliation and betrayal and assume responsibility for her family.  After having spent the previous 13 years as a stay-at-home mother, Alicia returns to the workforce as a defense attorney and sheds her persona as the embarrassed wife of a politician and takes charge of her destiny in order to provide for her two children.
