CBS Television Studios released a statement to following the incident: "This afternoon, while filming a scene for The Good Wife in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking actress Kristin Chenoweth.

All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery."
