If you’re not watching The Good Wife, then you’re missing out on one of the best dramas on TV.
I don’t really go for the “ripped from the headlines” types of shows, but I got so many requests to see Alicia Florrick’s apartment in Chicago that I finally started watching…and got totally hooked.
The sets are great, too. So today we’re taking a closer look at her apartment.
Alicia Florrick’s Apartment on “The Good Wife”
The apartment scenes are filmed on a 3,000 square-foot set in Brooklyn.
Julianna Margulies plays Alicia, a politician’s wife whose life is changed by her husband’s sex scandal.
After spending years as a stay-at-home mom, she goes back to work as an attorney to pay the bills and discovers that she’s really good at it.
The Set Decorator for the series is the talented Beth Kushnick.
She writes a blog for CBS.com that gives inside looks into the weekly set design.
The Dining Room
The Director of Photography Fred Murphy said, “In a way, it’s filmed more like an old movie than a CSI type of TV show. A classic kind of movie. Kind of 1940s.”
The code words for the sets were “simplicity and elegance,” and it shows.
Chris Noth plays Alicia’s ex-husband Peter Florrick, whose misdeeds while in office put him out of a job and into a prison cell.
Matt Czuchry plays Cary Agos on The Good Wife and is one of my favorite characters.
Almost makes me wish Rory ended up with him!
Designer Stephen Saint-Onge visited the set in person and took some of these fabulous set photos.
Thanks to him for sharing them with us! His book is No Place Like Home.
