David Hyde Pierce Signs Up for ‘The Good Wife’

David Hyde Pierce Joins The Good Wife

Emmy winner David Hyde Pierce returns to series television for the first time since the critically acclaimed Frasier ended its run in 2004 with a recurring role in CBS’ The Good Wife. Pierce will be taking on the recurring role in the sixth season playing “a highly respected cable news legal commentator who is so disgusted by the corruption and murder rate in Chicago that he decides to run for office in order to affect change.”

Season six will premiere on September 21, 2014 at 9:30pm ET, 9pm PT. The series stars Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, Matt Czuchry, Archie Panjabi, Makenzie Vega, Alan Cumming, Matthew Goode and Zach Grenier.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled and flattered that David’s making The Good Wife his first TV role since Frasier,” said Executive Producers/Showrunners Robert and Michelle King. “We’re tremendous fans of his dramatic skills as well as his comedy.”

In addition to Frasier, Pierce’s credits include The Powers That Be, Little Man Tate, Sleepless in Seattle, Nixon, Full Frontal, A Bug’s Life, and Wet, Hot, American Summer.
