After launching the first original court show on streaming with Judy Justice on Amazon Freevee, Judy Sheindlin could make history again with the first streaming show to sell in broadcast syndication. Former CBS executive Scott Koondel’s Sox Entertainment, which distributes Judy Justice, is actively exploring selling the show’s library — approximate 260 episodes — to TV stations for fall 2023 or fall 2024, sources tell Deadline. Additionally, cable syndication also is a possibility.
Judge Judy Sheindlin will serve another helping of Judy Justice. Her streaming series, which launched in November, has been renewed for a second season. IMDb TV, Amazon’s complimentary (i.e., not Prime) streaming service, made the announcement on Tuesday — simultaneously revealing that the show has been among the platform’s most popular originals, with a combined 25 million-plus hours streamed in four months.
The company hopes a new court show starring the straight-talking judge will help turbocharge its free, ad-supported streaming platform, IMDb TV.
Judge Judy Sheindlin announced today the start date and name of her new show, Judy Justice, which will be available weekdays on IMDb TV, a free streaming service offered by Amazon.
Judith Sheindlin is headed to streaming. The Judge Judy star’s untitled new court show (aka Judy Justice) has been greenlighted by Amazon Studios to stream exclusively on IMDb TV, Amazon’s free, ad-supported streaming service.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show will welcome Judge Judy Sheindlin on Monday and in a preview of the episode, Sheindlin will be striking the gavel for the last season of the long-running and wildly popular court series Judge Judy after 25 years — but she’s not hanging up her robe just yet. She already has her new series Judy Justice waiting in the wings.
