Sarah Palin Might Preside As Judge in Reality TV Courtroom Series


Though with the likes of Donald Trump and Ben Carson, the 2016 election seems to take the cake for hosting the biggest media-spectacled candidates, it’s hard to forget the 2008 jaunt of Sarah Palin. And, according to a recent announcement, it might be actually impossible to forget about her anytime soon.

According to a report in People , Sarah Palin may soon be gracing our personal television screens, but not for what one might expect. (Or, come to think of it, maybe following Sarah Palin’s Alaska, it’s exactly what one might expect.) Palin is in talks to act as a courtroom judge in her own reality TV show. People‘s report indicates that the one-time presidential hopeful signed a deal with the Montana-based production company Warm Springs in February.

The former governor of Alaska, famously known for being able to see Russia from her house, doesn’t actually have a juris doctor degree, but the source in the article doesn’t think that this will be a problem: “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 the project.”

Though the show has yet to have a pilot ordered, the production team is already adding some big names to its roster, including the television executive that is responsible for the super successful career launches of everyone’s favorites — Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown.
