Jerry Springer’s talk show may be coming to an end but you’ll still be seeing the presenter on television as his plans to launch “Judge Jerry” have now been unveiled.
The presenter’s upcoming show is expected to air in fall 2019, with news of his latest venture emerging almost six months after production stopped on “The Jerry Springer Show”.
“Judge Jerry” will see Springer, who was a lawyer before his television career took off, argue small-claims cases on camera.
The 74-year-old, who hosted his beloved chat show for a whopping 27 years, explained: “For the first time in my life, I am going to be called honourable.
“My career is coming full circle, and I finally get to put my law degree to use after all these years,” he added, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Tracie Wilson, executive VP creative affairs at NBCUniversal Television Distribution, said: “‘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.
“We are so happy to continue our fantastic partnership with Jerry, who is a proven TV icon with a dedicated and broad fan base.”
