Endorsing Donald Trump for President may have helped the former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin secure a production deal for a new show. Palin will preside over a new syndicated courtroom series similar to “Judge Judy” which is slated to premiere in 2017.

“What happens next is she’ll meet with stations, make a pilot and sell it” said a source close to Palin.
Producer Larry Lyttle and his production company, Big Ticket Television are behind Palin’s new project. Lyttle helped launch and executive produce Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown. Unlike her predecessors, Palin does not have a law degree.
According to TMZ, Lyttle says Palin having a law degree isn’t necessary, because she’ll preside over “the courtroom of common sense,” adding, “she’s appointed judges and is well equipped as a former governor to preside over cases.”
The selling point of having the politician as a “judge” is supposedly her unique personality and frequently controversial commentary. “Palin’s telegenic personality, wide appeal and common sense wisdom make her a natural for this kind of format and a top pick for this project,” added the source.
