With nine current first-run court show strips populating the landscape (led by “Judge Judy,” of course), you might question the value, if any, or launching a new gavel-themed daily in syndication. But along comes “Paternity Court” today from Orion TV Productions (a division of MGM Domestic Television Distribution) featuring family lawyer and legal analyst Lauren Lake as she hears and rules on paternity cases and renders DNA test results.
The ongoing success of NBCUniversal talker “Maury,” hosted by Maury Povich is part of the reason why “Paternity Court” is premiering, no doubt. And the clearances at launch time for the barter only strip is at an estimated 92 percent of the country. Check your local listings for air-times.
