So, this just happened.
It has been confirmed that former half-term Governor of Alaska and the Republican Party’s 2008 nominee for Vice-President Sarah Palin has inked a production deal to become television’s next Judge Judy. Yep, according to People, she apparently signed with Warm Springs to produce a courtroom reality show that is set to debut sometime in the fall of 2017.
Of course, that is assuming any stations pick it up after she gets the pilot filmed. This will be sold as a syndicated daytime series. Considering all the crap that currently clogs up broadcast television during the morning and early afternoon, it would seem like Mama Grizzly will have a good shot in getting picked up by a few channels.
Unlike other TV judges, Palin doesn’t have a law degree. But, according to People’s sources, she does have other qualities that will serve her well in the courtroom.
“Palin’s telegenic personality, wide appeal and common sense wisdom make her a natural for this kind of format and she was Warm Springs’ top pick for this project.”
Palin also brings to the table an advanced degree in Gibberish, a doctorate in Word Salad and plenty of experience in shamelessly selling herself.
If this show makes it to air, this will be (at least) Sarah Palin’s third reality TV show, following Sarah Palin’s Alaska and Amazing America with Sarah Palin. She also made appearances on her oldest daughter Bristol’s short-lived series.
In other news, perhaps we just need to hit the reset button on this whole America experiment.
