by at . Comments

As one of the most current shows on TV, The Good Wife often throws out relevant pop culture references, from Sarah Palin to Jenny Sanford to the double rainbow YouTube video.

On an upcoming episode, meanwhile, the CBS drama will take this show aspect to a new level:

Rita Wilson and F. Murray Abrahamwill have been booked on a February installment that’s inspired by The Social Network and, specifically, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

  • Sharp Looking Couple
  • Social Network Poster

The buzz-worthy episode will focus on a young computer geek who launches a website about which a film is made. He then sues the producers because he's unhappy with the movie version of his life.

Abraham will portray the lead attorney at a film conglomerate, while Wilson will play another lawyer named Viola. She'll be an old friend of Diane's.
