TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING?  Add Michael J. Fox and Mamie Gummer, and I'm sold:
Picture it: A redheaded lawyer with a penchant for ruffle blouses taking on the toughest cases while complimenting broaches and talking about cupcakes. Yes, we're talking about a TV series starring Carrie Preston as The Good Wife's Elsbeth Tascioni....
Preston, who also stars as Arlene on True Blood, picked up an Emmy for her work as the flighty attorney on The Good Wife. Elsbeth's mind is like no other. She's a character ripe for a spinoff—just ask Preston and The Good Wife co-creator Robert King. Preston has publicly spoken about her desire to bring the world more Elsbeth and King admitted there have been some talks.

"We've discussed it internally," King told E! News. "It always comes down to where you can put your energy. Our worry is that—we're not the kind of showrunners, unfortunately, who can take our eyes off this and do two things at once. I wish we could because there's no one more fun to work with and better comedian than Carrie Preston. There's such a cool show there."

    In checking her Wiki, I'd somehow never noticed that she played Ben Linus' mother in flashbacks in Lost.

    Which was always a tad creepy since Preston and Emerson are married.
