NBC announced Jerry Springer is returning to TV. The former host of the “The Jerry Springer Show” has inked a deal with NBC for a new series, “Judge Jerry.”
The veteran talk show host will appear as a judge in a courtroom. Springer earned a law degree from Northwestern University in 1968. He went on to have a career in politics, including a stint as the mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, before landing his longtime talk show in 1991.
“Judge Jerry” is expected to premiere in Fall 2019 and will be taped with a live studio audience.
