TVWise continues our Upfronts coverage with a first look at NBC’s new comedy series Bad Judge.
Bad Judge follows Wild child Rebecca Wright (Kate Walsh), who knows how to have a good time, but she also happens to be one of L.A.’s toughest and most respected criminal court judges. She has a reputation for unorthodox behavior in the courtroom, including creative rulings and saying exactly what’s on her mind. Her private life, on the other hand, is anything but innocent. She parties too much and rocks out on the drums in a band with her best friend, Jenny. While there’s no shortage of male admirers who would love to spend time with her, she’s not ready to settle down … except when an 8-year-old boy — whose parents were put in jail by Rebecca — needs her help. He may, in fact, be the one thing that starts to tame this “bad” judge.
Created by Chad Kultgen, the half-hour comedy is produced by Universal Television and Gary Sanchez Productions. In addition to Kate Walsh, the cast also includes John Ducey, Tone Bell and Theodore Barnes, The executive producers are Chad Kultgen, Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, Anne Heche, Jill Sobel Messick, Kevin Messick and Kate Walsh.
