Sarah Palin ain’t Judge Judy … but the 2 will have exactly the same power when they pound the gavel. The production company for Palin’s new show just moved to register “Palin Rules.” Palin’s making a clear distinction between her show and courtroom favorites like, “People’s Court,” “Judge Mathis,” and “Divorce Court” … she doesn’t have a law degree or a judicial title, but she can still act like she does.
Palin Rules is being produced by Larry Lyttle, the same producer who brought Sheindlin [Judge Judy] to television. He is hoping to get the show on television by September 2017. He told TMZ in March that Palin will preside over “the courtroom of common sense,” adding, “She’s appointed judges and is well equipped as a former governor to preside over cases.”
So far the show does not have a network. Palin’s last reality show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, was cancelled in early 2011 after just nine episodes.
