B&C reports Nancy Grace is in talks to “become the next Judge Judy.” CBS Television Distribution has signed a development deal with the HLN host to produce a daily, 30-minute program “that will be a new take on the court show.”
B&C reports Grace shot a “presentation” last week of the show tentatively titled “Swift Justice With Nancy Grace.” The hope is local stations will buy it for a fall 2010 debut.
Grace will continue to host her HLN show. Insiders tell TVNewser HLN execs see the possible strip as an advantage for them, just as Joy Behar is seen on “The View” during the day, giving her HLN show more exposure at night.
