DESCRIPTION: (from Program Partner's web site, September 2008) In the great tradition of Divorce Court and People’s Court, it’s the next hit daytime franchise: FAMILY COURT. In a marketplace full of court shows that focus on commonplace disputes, the dynamic Judge Penny Brown Reynolds is bringing substance to daytime. Family Court with Judge Penny will tackle the tough cases that other court shows avoid: domestic abuse, child custody, reckless parenting and more. Judge Penny’s own upbringing as an impoverished child raised by a single mother - and her incredible success story in becoming a nationally-known lawyer and judge - make her uniquely prepared for family-centered cases. Emotional, inspiring, and affirming – this is a courtroom unlike and other on TV.
