President-elect Donald Trump's White House victory has given "shape" to a new politically oriented TV series titled "The Good Fight," its executive producer says.

During a press tour for the Television Critics Association, Michael King said the election "gave us a spine" for the CBS All Access spin-off of "The Good Wife," Business Insider reported.

"What was good, the world changed on us," King said, the outlet reported. "'The Good Wife' was a little bit about the Obama years. This gives shape to a new show. This is all going to change, and some say for better, some for worse."

King said the show, which premieres Feb. 19, will focus on how liberals are behaving in response to Trump's election.

"'The Good Wife' was, if you looked for it, a satire of a liberal mindset," he said. "So it’s not just anti-Trump, but it’s also a look at how liberals are reacting. It’s more interesting to me to see how the culture changes.”

According to Business Insider, the new series picks up one year after the events of "The Good Wife" finale.

Star Christine Baranski recalled one scene in the pilot involving her character's photo of Hillary Clinton – shot at a time Baranski thought the Democratic nominee would win.

"When [Baransky's character] Diane has to leave her office forever because she’s out of a job, and she takes that photo of Hillary Clinton, that scene was shot the night before the election,” Baranski said, Business Insider reported.

"I imagine it’s going to have a very different resonance now."
