With The Good Wife and its spin-off The Good Fight both sensational successes, it's no surprise that Robert and Michelle King, the brains behind both series, have just been green-lit to launch another. Just don't expect this one to ever find its way to Alicia Florrick's courtroom.

Ditching legal drama for a more supernatural premise, the new show will be called Evil. Its official description gives us this clue as to what to expect, calling it "a psychological mystery that examines science versus religion and the origins of evil."

And who should they cast to help them explore where evil comes from? None other than the superhero with his ear to the ground, Luke Cage star Mike Colter, who will play a priest-in-training on Evil across from Westworld star Katja Herbers, who will play a forensic psychologist who's not so sure about the miracles and demonic possessions they encounter on the show.

On Start TV, we've seen shows like Medium and Ghost Whisperer walk that fine line between skepticism and deep belief, and those seem to be the dual forces at play on Evil just as much as the obvious binary of good versus evil that will likely also play out episode to episode. To round out the cast, they've already hired two more intriguing actors, Michael Emerson (LOST) and Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show). 

There's no premiere date to announce just yet, but Evil will air on CBS, where the Kings have ruled for the past decade.
