Jerry Springer‘s long-running talk show circus is wrapping up in 2019, but he’s already got a new gig in the works – “Judge Jerry.”
That’s right! The king of ratchet TV is putting down his microphone and picking up a gavel as the newest court TV judge.
Via The Hollywood Reporter:
The show, Judge Jerry, would have Springer, a former lawyer and the one-time mayor of Cincinnati, presiding over small-claims cases a la Judge Judy and numerous other courtroom shows.
NBCUniversal declined to comment on the project. It is being targeted for a potential fall 2019 launch.
With all due respect, Jerry – I’ve got Judge Judy and Judge Mathis.
I’m good, luv. Are you here for this?
