Jon Lovitz to mock real-life court shows

jon lovitzJon Lovitz is set to star as the judge in a new unscripted series for NBC called Bad Judge. The series will use the same format of real people trying to solve real grievances that made shows like The People's Court and Judge Judy so popular, but Lovitz will act more as comic relief, and his decisions will have little or no bearing on the actual law. The new series was conceived by Josh Lieb, who has written scripts for NewsRadio and The Simpsons, as well as the upcoming Big Stan with Rob Schneider. I think this new series could actually be really funny, since it's allowing Lovitz to improv in his own way, which I think always results in his best stuff.

Ha, I was thinking the same thing MW (I love arrested development, and I can't beleive how much this sounds like the Judge Reinhold joke).
