ABC announced a boatload of news this morning at TCA with the first being a new 10-episode courtroom comedy series Judge Steve Harvey (wt) — and yes, it’s exactly what you think it is. It’s a courtroom comedy featuring Steve Harvey.
In the one-hour unscripted comedy, Harvey will serve as judge, jury and star of the series. He will welcome a variety of conflicts and characters to his courtroom –from small claims to big disputes and everything in between.
