At CBS' Upfronts presentation it had some news about its All Access subscription streaming service to reveal. Beyond the flash of a new logo and a brief teaser trailer for the Bryan Fuller-producedStar Trek show that will try to lure subscribers in January, it also revealed its second exclusive show will be a spinoff of the recently-concluded The Good Wife. The new show will arrive in the spring of 2017 featuring actresses Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo reprising characters from the original.

In a statement, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CBS Digital Media Marc DeBevoise called the decision to add the show "data-driven," since The Good Wife is one of its most-watched shows on internet platforms. That approach has seemed to work well for Netflix, and it will be interesting to see if an old-school network can adjust and pull off a similar trick.CBS Press Express (1), (2)
