TV CRITIC’S CORNER
If you miss “The Good Wife,” you have “The Good Fight” on CBS All Access, the network’s pay streaming platform. Diane Lockhart and her hair helmet are still doing their thing in the Chicago legal community.
And soon you’ll be able to watch Julianna Margulies every week. She has just signed on for the leading role in a new AMC series called “Dietland,” based on Sarai Walker’s darkly comic 2015 bestseller about the beauty industry. Margulies will play Kitty, a magazine editor targeted by a feminist organization. Joy Nash, who was in “The Mindy Project” and “Twin Peaks,” will costar as an obese woman whose decision to have lap band surgery places her in the middle of a conflict between rival feminist factions.
The show is from Marti Noxon, a producer-writer whose work includes “UnREAL,” “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” “Juliana is diabolically talented and beautiful, which makes her perfect to play our Kitty,” Noxon said in a statement. “I am genuinely honored to have the opportunity to work with her. She’s a special human and a rare actor. I can’t wait to start and for the world to get a load of this show.”
