Amazon MGM Studios and Sox Entertainment announced a multi-year broadcast syndication deal for the Freevee original series, Judy Justice, featuring Judge Judy Sheindlin. Sox Entertainment has secured deals with major broadcast groups including Nexstar, Sunbeam, Cox Media, Weigel, and Mission Broadcasting in well over a 100 U.S broadcast markets including all of the top 10 and is set to premiere next fall.

“What a full circle moment,” said Judge Judy Sheindlin. “This continues to be quite an adventure!”

“We are thrilled to bring Judy Justice to linear television audiences nationwide. With Judge Judy Sheindlin at the helm, viewers can expect a compelling and thought-provoking legal experience in high definition for the first time in broadcast,” said Scott Koondel, CEO for Sox Entertainment and executive producer of Judy Justice. “I’m grateful that TV station groups have embraced this new innovative syndication model with talent that has been on broadcast stations for 28 years.”

“We remain honored that Her Honor agreed to go on this streaming adventure with us,” said Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD, unscripted, and targeted programming, Amazon MGM Studios. “Having firmly cemented her place as an icon of broadcast television, Judge Sheindlin took a pioneering risk bringing her new show and brand to a then-nascent service. Not only are we thrilled that her common sense, life skills building approach to justice has been a hit with cross-generational Amazon customers, we are beyond delighted that we, in partnership with Sox Entertainment, are now able to deliver Judy Justice back to hundreds of broadcast markets – and broadcast audiences – across North America. Full circle indeed.”
