The Good Wife, a long-running series, was inspired by stories of wives standing by their disgraced husbands. Set in a defense law firm, the series features strong women past midlife shown in their professional and personal capacities, as lawyers, lovers, and mothers. Julianna Margulies in the title role and Christine Baranski as one of the practice partners are particularly strong.
I found it flagged a little in the later series; and loved how many topical (at the time the shows were aired) issues are addressed, often as the real cases were playing out in real life. The show wrapped in May of 2016 after seven very successful seasons.
