David Hyde PierceMarking his first TV role since “Frasier” ended in 2004, David Hyde Pierce has been cast in a recurring role in the sixth season of the CBS drama “The Good Wife.”

He will play 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 effect change.

“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.”

“The Good Wife” is known for its high pedigree of talent, often drawing in theater veterans like Pierce — including Alan Cumming, who has two Emmy Award nominations for his role of Eli Gold, and Christine Baranski, who has five Emmy nominations for her role as Diane Lockhart. Julianna Margulies, the show’s star, received the Emmy Award for lead actress in a drama series at Monday’s ceremony.

The show is produced by Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions in association with CBS Television Studios.  It returns for to CBS at 9:30 p.m. Sept. 21.
