Two weeks ago, the co-creators of the CBS show, The Good Wife, sat on a New Yorker Festival panel called "Television and Politics." At one point, they were asked if they envied the freedom granted their cable counterparts. Michelle King, sitting next to her husband and Good Wife co-creator, Robert King, said she was a little jealous that the cable folks could make far fewer episodes in a season. But in terms of what they could write about on CBS? They had freedom. In the video above, she said:
Michelle: In terms of content, of what we're able to talk about politically, we have never been waved off anything by CBS in terms of what—
Michelle: Oh. Well. No, I mean in terms of political content.
So what exactly does football mean there? Well, CBS broadcasts AFC games and SEC games. The Good Wife is a legal drama. Maybe something about a concussions lawsuit? Maybe something about an NFL player? It's not clear. All we know is CBS may or may not have "waved off" something about football. A source tells Defamer that "no NFL storylines ever made it into Good Wife scripts," though, as our sister site points out, that doesn't preclude the possibility that something was scuttled well before.
