LOS ANGELES, July 11 (UPI) -- A TV court show starring celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is to air on NBC-owned stations in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas and three other cities.
The show's producer and distributor, Entertainment Studios Inc., said "We The People with Gloria Allred" is to begin this fall.
It also will air on NBC stations in San Francisco, San Diego and Hartford.
"It is unprecedented to have the biggest name in law come to television and be a part of one of its most successful genres -- the television court show," Byron Allen, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Entertainment Studios, said in a statement Monday.
"With the increasing success of our show 'America's Court with Judge Ross' we are extremely proud to have Gloria Allred join our family and further demonstrate Entertainment Studios' unwavering commitment to be the No. 1 provider of quality television content," Allen said.
