WCIU-TV / CHICAGO ADDS "STREET COURT"
(JANUARY 20, 2009) � Litton Entertainment is pleased to announce that Weigel's
WCIU-TV in Chicago is part of the impressive list of stations adding STREET COURT
to their schedule for Fall 2009. Breaking the court show out of the courtroom, the series
follows "Judge Mazz" (aka Michael Mazzariello), a tough-talking former Brooklyn
D.A., as he summons litigants back to the scene of each dispute.
"We're excited to be a part of a new take on television court programming, which is how
we feel STREET COURT can be positioned," said WCIU's Executive Vice President
and General Manager Neal Sabin.
Stations previously announced for STREET COURT include WPIX-TV New York, and
station groups Barrington, Belo, Capitol, CBS, Cox, Hearst / Argyle, Journal, Local TV,
Mission, Newport, Roberts, Sinclair, Tribune and Weigel.
Offering a fresh twist on one of the most popular program formats on television,
STREET COURT advances the courtroom genre by pairing the authority and tradition
of the judge role with the authenticity and drama of real locations.
