Randy Douthit directs and produces Judy Justice. Judy Justice is the groundbreaking show concerning the courtroom that stars Judge Judy Scheindlin aired on Amazon’s streaming service, IMDB TV. Randy produced and directed Judge Judy before piloting Judy Justice. The show has been on the air for a remarkable twenty-five years and has three Emmy awards to its name. The show attained induction into the Hall of Fame of Broadcasting & Cable and resulted in Judy Sheindlin receiving recognition from the Guinness World Records.
Before being at the helm of Judge Judy, Randy Douthit was the creator and producer of Larry King Live, the successful and long-running primetime show on CNN. In the latter role, he spearheaded the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the hit show from NBC. Quincy Jones once stated that Randy was amongst the most energetic and innovative producers he encountered.
While Judy Justice is a new show, most people would assume that it offers nothing unique from Judge Judy as it still features Judge Judy Sheindlin in a courtroom setting. However, this is not the case. The show features a new bailiff, Kevin Rasco, who starred in Judge Judy’s bailiff instead of retaining Petri Hawkins-Byrd. Moreover, there are several significant adjustments made to the show by Randy Douthit beyond changes in the cast of the new show.
While the new show’s premise is similar to Judge Judy, it involves Judy Sheindlin passing judgment for comprising small claims; significant aspects are different, including the size of cases handled by Judge Sheindlin, the episode’s structure, and the set. It contains a different shade of wood, columns of marble, and built-in monitors. These changes result in the set having the appearance of a modern courtroom that would not look out of place in any big city in the USA. After the success of Judge Judy, Judy Justice, which features a new perspective and is on a different platform, is a breath of fresh air to an already popular program. Consequently, the probability of the new show reaching new heights is already high.
