The husband-wife duo Robert and Michelle King struck TV gold with The Good Wife, which Rolling Stone once theorized could be the last great network TV drama. Then in 2017, they successfully spun off The Good Fight from their hit show, solidifying the screenwriting team as one of TV drama's best right now. Now, the Kings have announced their newest show concept, which, like The Good Wife, also centers on a smart, empowered woman, but boasts an eerie new angle.
The new show is set to be called Evil, and the official logline for the pilot defines it as “A series about the battle between science and religion, Evil focuses on a skeptical female clinical psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a blue-collar contractor as they investigate supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and other extraordinary occurrences to see if there’s a scientific explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.”
It sounds like a cross between The X-Files and The Exorcist, so consider us intrigued by the potential in the Kings' new pitch. No further details are available now, but as fans of The Good Wife, we'll be rooting for more drama from this pair of spellbinding screenwriters.
