Viewers of Amy Huberman’s new show Striking Out have pointed out how similar it is to the overall theme of The Good Wife.
People were quick to notice that Amy Huberman’s character Tara is similar to Alicia Florick in the award-winning drama.
The new series follows Amy’s character setting up a new law firm, after finding her husband-to-be in bed with another woman.
The Good Wife originally had a similar story – with Alicia returning to law after finding out her husband was cheating.
Although there are only some similarites, people were quick to compare the two, especially since her assistant seems very similar to Alicia’s special investigator Kalinda:
#StrikingOut Is this the sequel to "The Good Wife" Already we've met Alicia, Kalinda, and a few others.

Watching #StrikingOut RTE1. I think the writers may have seen the Good Wife at least once.
