On the heels of a very well received fifth season of The Good Wife and a second Emmy win for star Julianna Margulies, the CBS series’ co-creators Robert King and Michelle King have signed a new three-year deal with CBS TV Studios to continue as executive producers and showrunners and develop new projects through their King Size Prods. They have already sold one, Brain Dead, with a put pilot commitment. Written by the Kings, it re-teams the auspices of The Good Wife: creators, the Kings; producers, CBS TV Studios and Scott Free; and network, CBS. Described as The West Wing meets The Strain, Brain Dead represents a major creative swing. It is a comedic horror hourlong show set in the world of D.C. politics. The Kings, repped by Paradigm and Jon Moonves, are executive producing with Scott Free’s Ridley Scott and David Zucker.

The Good Wife, which served one of the biggest shockers in recent TV history with the unexpected demise of a main character, returns for Season 6 on September 21. Here is the first promo:
