Sarah Palin to host reality show as TV judge
Sarah Palin is back in the reality show world — and this time with a Judge Judy-type show.
The former Alaska governor, who does not have a law degree, signed a deal with Montana-based production company Warm Springs for a reality court show that would premiere next year if it’s picked up by stations, according to Howard Bragman of Fifteen Minutes PR, which represents the production company.
The story was first reported by People Magazine.
This isn’t Palin’s first foray into reality television — before this, Palin starred in “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on TLC, which started in 2010.
Palin was first approached about the show in 2015 and would work with TV executive Larry Lyttle who found Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown.
“It’s about different personalities and different styles,” Bragman told CNN. “Same way late night talk shows are different as dictated by the hosts. Similar format — different show.”
Palin returned to the political spotlight again in January after endorsing GOP front-runner Donald Trump for president. While stumping for Trump last week in Florida, she referred to Trump’s frequent rally protestors as “punk-ass, little thuggery.”
According to People, Palin is currently in Alaska with her husband, Todd, who’s transitioning from intensive care following a serious snow machine accident March 13.
