New Series from Judge Judy for Amazon Freevee


Amazon Freevee has ordered the court program Tribunal, created and executive produced by Judge Judy Sheindlin (Judge Judy, Judy Justice).

The new series will feature a panel of three judges as they collectively adjudicate real cases. Tribunal will also include a video component that will allow viewers to follow scenes surrounding the events of the case.

The judges of Tribunal will be Judge Patricia DiMango, a former New York State Supreme Court Justice and Administrative Judge of the New York State Supreme Court, Criminal Term, for Kings County; Judge Tanya Acker, former Judge Pro Tem in Los Angeles County Superior Court and experienced civil litigator; and Adam Levy, former Putnam County, New York District Attorney and instructor for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy and New York Prosecutors Training Institute. Levy is Sheindlin’s son.

The new series follows the success of Judy Justice’s first season, which was the number one original program on Amazon Freevee in first streams and hours watched.

Tribunal is an exciting new format which combines traditional court with a video-enhanced presentation,” said Sheindlin. “The panel of judges offer a dynamic combination of different backgrounds, experiences and opinions that are unique, unparalleled and compelling.”

Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, co-heads of content and programming at Freevee, said, “With the strong support our customers have shown for Judy Justice, we’re excited to add another Judge Sheindlin program to our slate. Judge Sheindlin has been a pioneer in creating premium courtroom content for more than 25 years, and Tribunal reinforces our vision of a modern television network that embraces day-part agnostic programming.”

“We’re delighted to be extending our partnership with Amazon Freevee,” added Scott Koondel, executive producer for Judy Justice and Tribunal. “Over the past year, we’ve worked closely with the team to bring Judy Justice to customers and have been thrilled with the reception. Freevee has made a home for Judy Justice, and we’re elated to have the opportunity to continue to develop Judge Sheindlin’s signature courtroom format.”
