Exclusive: Julianna Margulies Returning to Series TV with “The Longshot” on Netflix Next Year


OK, who doesn’t love Julianna Margulies?

The star of “The Good Wife” and “ER” is returning to series TV next year, I am told.

Margulies will star in a series called “The Long Shot” or “Longshot” — still unclear. She will play a professional gambler.

The paperwork is just drying, but I love this idea. She is a perfect combination of sexy and steely. Right now Margulies is a special guest on “The Morning Show.” She did a great stint on “Billions.” She also appeared with Bryan Cranston in the hit movie, “The Upside.”

Julianna has won three Emmy awards, a Critics Choice Award, a couple of SAG Awards for acting. That’s pretty impressive. She will not be a long shot for more of these once the new series kicks into gear.

More details to come. Just watch this story get cherry picked across the internet.
