Judy Sheindlin‘s long-running television series Judge Judy will be ending next year and she has set up plans for her next show!
The 78-year-old Emmy-winning TV star will be launching a new series at Amazon Studios and IMDb TV.
Variety reports that the new series will “see Sheindlin preside over a different court with her usual iron fist, featuring no-nonsense, expeditious verdicts on a new array of cases, litigants and judgments.”
“I’m over the moon to be in business with Amazon Studios and continuing this incredible journey with them on a new platform is so exciting,” Judy said in a statement. “I used to yell at my husband, Jerry, for all the packages he had ordered from Amazon every day. I have enough mouthwash in the cabinets to keep the entire planet’s breath fresh until the next millennium. The doorbell never stops ringing. The dogs don’t even bark at the delivery people anymore. After I signed this deal, I apologized to Jerry. Who would have thought that the Sheindlin’s and Amazon would be mishpachah?”
Judy previously was making $47 million a year for her work on Judge Judy and she sold the library of shows to CBS for a reported $95 million to $100 million figure.
