It’s not a good time to be Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) on “The Good Wife.” The character tried to secure her Illinois Supreme Court seat on the most recent episode, but according to the players behind the scenes, she could only do that by trashing Will (Josh Charles) in an interview.
"I don’t see it as a level playing field. We do 22 episodes of high-quality writing and acting and production. Cable does 10, [maybe 13]. It’s a half a year. There used to be Cable ACE Awards and now everybody is together. Our writers have been egregiously overlooked and, if I have the good fortune to win, I will probably address that and speak in defense of my show. We have eight days of shooting and we do 22 in a row. We don’t have hiatuses in between, we don’t take breaks except for holidays. That’s an astonishing achievement."
