The show will follow the youngest judge in New York who is proficient at handling Family Court cases, though her personal life could use some work.
The pitch sounds similar to CBS' upcoming drama Bull, which is inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw and is scheduled to premiere this fall. Maybe a crossover between the two could work?
Judge Judy premiered in 1996 and has been renewed through 2020. Her latest contract renewal included a first-look production deal for her company Queen Bee Productions.
