Move over, Judge Judy. There's a new TV courtroom judge coming to town – and it's none other than former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
The onetime vice presidential candidate has been tapped to preside over a new reality court show that would premiere next year. She signed a deal in February with Montana-based production company Warm Springs, a source close to the process tells PEOPLE.
"It's a production deal," the source explains. "What happens next is she'll meet with stations, make a pilot and sell it."
Warm Springs first approached Palin with the idea in 2015 and has since put together a team that includes the TV executive who found Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown.
You know you'd think when hell freezes over there would be some notice in the paper.
Of course as we know Palin has no law degree, and her only legal experience is trying not to get caught for breaking the law.
However leave it to her to find a way to put her son Track in front of a judge who WON'T toss him in the clink and throw away the key.
It's been so long I'm confused, do we start taking bets on how long before she quits this one NOW, or AFTER it premieres?
Update: The Daily Mail has pictures of Palin leaving the hospital where Todd is recovering from his snowmachine accident.
In pictures obtained exclusively by Daily Mail Online, Palin appeared tired and tense as she left Mat-Su Regional Medical Center in Alaska last Friday after flying home from Florida where she had been campaigning for Donald Trump.
Oh I have no doubt that she's "tired and tense."
