Makenzie Vega has run into a very bad man right after her performance in The Good Wife. She is the actress who played Julianna Margulies’ on-screen daughter on the CBS show.

She plays the role of a seventeen-year-old teenager who gets rear-ended by a creepy guy and after that she, along with her school friends, is stalked by a masked psycho in Fender Bender, Mark Pavia’s horror film. It will premiere on 3rd June on the Chiller Network.

In the exclusive clip, we can see Vega’s character after she received her driving license. Sadly, she runs into a serial killer, planning to enjoy a relaxing night at home. She finds out that while taking her shower, someone was actually filming her, on her own iPhone. She further suspects that the same culprit might still be inside the house.

The Good Wife left Alicia Florrick, stranded in a hotel corridor with her cheek still stinging after she was administered a slap. However, during this week’s upfront presentation, CBS confirmed that The Good Wife will receive a spin-off series made by Robert and Michelle King of TGW. It will be centered on Diane Lockhart, Alicia’s former partner and her bestie Lucca Quinn.

The title and the length of the first season are yet to be announced but it has been confirmed that the show will be a marquee attraction for CBS All Access, similar to the earlier announced Star Trek series.

It is a streaming service from CBS, available at a price of $5.99 per month. Keep in mind that strong ratings were never posted by The Good Wife and it is a rather surprising candidate to receive the franchise treatment.

However, when you are focusing on streaming, things depend more on loyalty than on the numbers. It is more of an inspired choice compared to another Criminal Minds or NCIS. At the same time, Die Hard fans felt that the show’s inspiration started slipping during the final seasons.

This raises the question of whether the upcoming spin-off is more about extracting as much possible from an already shriveled up product. However, they can prevent from making the same mistake by turning this show into a musical. The reason for such an observation is its cast.

The show featured musical theater legends like Nathan Lane, Michael Cerveris, Stockard Channing, Megan Hilty, David Hyde Pierce, Bebe Neuwirth, Audra McDonald, Anika Noni Rose, Laura Benanti, Donna Murphy, Jonathan Groff, Harvey Fierstein, Kristin Chenoweth, Renée Elise Goldsberry and Leslie Odom Jr.

Even in the busy series finale, there was a cameo appearance made by Sutton Foster. Alicia is now absent while Jumbo and Baranski have enough musical knowledge and if tenor singing is needed, they can always bring in Alan Cumming’s political fixer.

In the meantime, Jack Dee and Archie Panjabi from The Good Wife will be featuring in Power Monkeys. This channel 4 comedy hails from the team, which was responsible for Ballot Monkeys last year. It is a six-part satire which pokes fun at Donald Trump’s campaign and the upcoming EU referendum.

Claire Skinner and Dee will play Sarah and Oliver respectively. They are colleagues in Unity Unit, which is pro-Europe. At the same time, Kevin McNally and Andy Nyman will be cast as characters on the bus of Brexit Roadshow.

Panjabi will be starring as a careerist Tory, named Preeya, who is secured between anti-Brexit and pro. It all depends on who she wishes to impress, in the party. Lauren’s character will be played by Amelia Bullmore. She is a moderate Republican who was drafted in order to win women votes for Trump.
