Former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, has signed a deal with the production company Warm Springs to film the pilot of a courtroom TV show, where she will be playing the judge. The company is behind Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown.
The pilot needs to be shot and then offer to TV stations for sale, which means that the series is still in its early stages. The show would premiere in daytime TV next year if it gets pick up by TV networks, as reported by People Magazine.
Unlike others, judges in similar TV shows, Palin does not have a law degree to support her spot in the decision chair, but producers noted that even though she lacks the degree, Palin offers a variety of other qualities that make her perfect for the job.
“When you look at Gov. Palin her personality, her style, her wide appeal, and the fact that she is so incredibly telegenic kind of make her a natural for this format,” said Howard Bragman, a spokesperson for the producers to ABC News.
This will not be the first time that Palin is in the reality-TV-area. The once vice presidential candidate started a reality TV show called Sarah Palin’s Alaska, which aired one season on TLC, from late 2010 to early 2011, according to Time Magazine.
A Donald Trump supporter
Palin recently rose some attention after she endorsed the GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and campaigned at his side in voting states. Word has not got out yet on whether she will have a seat on Trump’s possible cabinet.
Last week, she rushed back to Alaska after her husband Todd Palin was in a snowmobile accident. He was in the intensive care unit of an Alaska hospital and went through surgery for repairing numerous breaks in his upper body, Palin said in a statement.
