That was fast!
It has been less than a year after the infamous and eponymous The Jerry Springer Show was canceled after 27 years, but Springer is already making his return to television.
Springer is reteaming with NBCUniversal TV Distribution for his very own courtroom show.
His return to daytime syndication will finally put his law degree into good use. During the half-hour court program, Judge Jerry will hear cases and render verdicts in front of a live studio audience at the Stamford Media Center in Connecticut.
“For the first time in my life, I am going to be called honorable,” Springer said in a statement. “My career is coming full circle and I finally get to put my law degree to use after all these years.”
“Judge Jerry will merge Jerry’s talent for connecting with people, his incredibly relatable and funny personality and his legal training and governing experience to bring viewers a more entertaining court show,” said Tracie Wilson, EVP, Creative Affairs, NBCUniversal TV Distribution. “We are so happy to continue our fantastic partnership with Jerry, who is a proven TV icon with a dedicated and broad fan base.”
Judge Jerry will debut in fall 2019.
