Plot Synopsis

Based on the character featured in THE GOOD WIFE and THE GOOD FIGHT, ELSBETH is a one-hour drama series that centers on Elsbeth Tascioni, an astute but unconventional attorney, who utilizes her singular point of view to make unique observations and corner brilliant criminals alongside the NYPD. After leaving her successful legal career in Chicago to tackle a new investigative role in New York City, Elsbeth finds herself jockeying with the toast of the NYPD, Captain C.W. Wagner, a charismatic and revered leader. Working alongside Elsbeth is Officer Kaya Blanke, a stoic and ethical officer who quickly develops an appreciation for Elsbeth's insightful and offbeat ways. Season 1 guest stars include Linda Lavin, Retta, Jane Krakowski, Blair Underwood, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and more.
On Thursday, May 23, 2024 at 9pm ET/PT, CBS premiered "A Fitting Finale," the season finale of ELSBETH, immediately followed by an encore presentation of "."

"A Fitting Finale" (9pm; NEW): When an unlikable fashion photographer is murdered in the middle of a fashion show, Elsbeth and the team suspect the killer to be either the photographer's college ex -- and leading model of the show, Nadine (Laura Benanti) -- or her jealous husband. Meanwhile, Elsbeth's role at the precinct is thrown into question. Andre De Shields guest stars as fashion designer Matteo Hart, and Tim Gunn cameos as himself.

"Reality Shock" (10pm; encore presentation): When a larger-than-life reality TV star is found dead in her bathtub, Elsbeth and Kaya investigate the circumstances around her death to determine if it was an accident or murder. As they get deeper into the events surrounding her demise, they meet Skip Mason (guest star Jesse Tyler Ferguson), the mercurial producer behind the popular, guilty-pleasure reality series "Lavish Ladies," who becomes a prime suspect after he is accused of going to dangerous lengths to concoct "good TV."

ELSBETH has been renewed for a second season.
