Television Icon Judge Judy Sheindlin Returns to the Courtroom with New IMDb TV Original Series, “Judy Justice,” Premiering November 1st

Series will introduce Kevin Rasco, Whitney Kumar, and Sarah Rose as additions to Judge Sheindlin’s court

CULVER CITY, California – September 9, 2021 – Court is back in session! Television icon Judge Judy Sheindlin returns to the courtroom with a new IMDb TV Original series, Judy Justice, premiering November 1. The arbitration-based program will also feature three new members of Judy Sheindlin’s courtroom staff, Kevin Rasco, Whitney Kumar, and Sarah Rose. New episodes of Judy Justice will be available every weekday exclusively on IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service.

Joining Judge Judy Sheindlin in the courtroom are bailiff Kevin Rasco, a retired Los Angeles probation officer and entrepreneur, court stenographer Whitney Kumar, a board-certified court reporter in the state of California, and Sarah Rose, a law clerk and Judge Sheindlin’s granddaughter, extending the legacy of the television and courtroom pioneer by bringing in a new generation of legal analysis.

Judge Sheindlin will reunite with her longtime executive producer and director Randy Douthit and co-executive producer Amy Freisleben. The trio have worked together on her long-running broadcast program Judge Judy for more than 25 years, and with Judy Justice they will bring a new courtroom program to streaming audiences.

“I am probably the luckiest on-air personality in the history of television to have had Randy Douthit and Amy Freisleben shepherd my program for over two decades. They continuously make me look good. With Judy Justice on IMDb TV, the magic continues,” said Judge Sheindlin. “Our bailiff Kevin has been in charge of my security for the last three years. He comes from law enforcement, has a winning smile, a delightful personality, and is always professional. Whitney was a truly lucky find. A skilled court stenographer for 15 years, she brings warmth, great proficiency, and best of all, can refresh my memory in a heartbeat with her machine. I’ve known Sarah, our law clerk, since she was born. She will be a third-generation female lawyer in our family. She’s smart, sassy, and opinionated. Who knows where she gets those traits?”

“Judge Judy Sheindlin has been instrumental in shaping the world of television for over 25 years, and she has been a weekday staple for advice, entertainment, and the best one-liners in the business,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, co-heads of Content and Programming for IMDb TV. “As we continue to build IMDb TV into a modern broadcast network, we are thrilled to have Judy Justice as a signature program that our streaming audiences can enjoy any time of day. Judge Sheindlin, Randy, and Amy have created a fresh court program, and we look forward to introducing Kevin, Whitney, and Sarah to viewers.”

“Judy is a force of nature with a sense of humor. She has an unwavering commitment to justice, a deep understanding of human nature, and a very big heart. She inspires me and makes everyone around her want to do better,” commented Randy Douthit, executive producer and director.

“I was thrilled and humbled when Judy asked me to join her in this new journey as part of Judy Justice, this exciting new program for IMDb TV and Amazon Studios. Our staff has worked tirelessly to create what we know will be the next generation of courtroom television that will appeal to both Judy’s existing fans, as well as to streaming viewers,” adds co-executive producer Amy Freisleben.

Leverage: Redemption | More Episodes Coming October 8 | Official Trailer | IMDb TV

The crew is back together for more cons and capers when Leverage: Redemption returns October 8 on IMDb TV.

About Leverage: Redemption

In this new iteration and new world, the Leverage crew have watched as the rich and powerful continue to take what they want without consequence. Grifter Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman), thief Parker (Beth Riesgraf), hitter Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane), and hacker Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge) have watched the world change over the last eight years. Since their last job, it’s become easier-and sometimes legal-for the rich to become richer and the powerful to squash anyone who gets in their way.

To address the changes in the world around them, the team finds new blood in Harry Wilson (Noah Wyle), a corporate lawyer who is looking for redemption after realizing he’d been sitting on the wrong side of the table for his entire career, and Breanna Casey (Aleyse Shannon), Hardison’s foster sister who has a knack for computers, robotics, and getting into trouble.

CATCH EIGHT NEW EPISODES OF THE IMDb TV ORIGINAL SERIES “LEVERAGE: REDEMPTION” ON OCTOBER 8

“Let’s go steal… eight new episodes of Leverage: Redemption.” In an all-new con, the Leverage crew surprised and delighted their fans by teasing the fall premiere of Leverage: Redemption in an exclusive video that dropped on IMDb TV socials today. The teaser video confirms that the IMDb TV Original series Leverage: Redemption will return this fall with eight additional season one episodes premiering October 8. In the brand-new episodes, the Leverage team finds itself up against a rival organization that embodies the system the team works so hard to take down.

Joining the cast in these additional episodes are guest stars Drew Powell (reprising his role as Jack Hurley from the original Leverage series), Ben Thompson, Joanna Cassidy, Jon Fletcher, and Brianna Brown, in addition to the previously announced guest stars James Marsters, LeVar Burton, and Andrea Navedo (continuing her role as Maria Shipp), as the Leverage team must aid a small town librarian, discredit a lifestyle and wellness guru, explore the failing memory of a legendary grifter, and more. The remaining episodes of season one of Leverage: Redemption will premiere on October 8 on IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service.

The first eight episodes of season one of Leverage: Redemption and all seasons of the original Leverage series are available to stream now on IMDb TV.

The rich and powerful take what they want, and the Leverage team is back to take them down. Sophie Devereaux (The Grifter), Parker (The Thief), Eliot Spencer (The Hitter), and Alec Hardison (The Hacker) have watched the world change over the last eight years. It’s become easier, and sometimes legal, for the rich to become richer and the powerful to squash anyone who gets in their way. The Leverage team finds new blood in Harry Wilson, a corporate lawyer who is looking for redemption after realizing he’s been sitting on the wrong side of the table for his entire career, and Breanna Casey, Hardison’s foster sister who has a knack for computers, robotics, and getting into trouble. In this new world, the team will use their collective skills to defeat a new kind of villain – from the man who created an opioid crisis from the comfort of his boardroom, to the couple who prefers to deport workers instead of paying them, to the shadowy security firm that helps hide dangerous secrets for a price. When someone needs help, they provide… Leverage.

Leverage: Redemption stars Gina Bellman as Sophie Devereaux, Beth Riesgraf as Parker, Christian Kane as Eliot Spencer, Aldis Hodge as Alec Hardison, Noah Wyle as Harry Wilson, and Aleyse Shannon as Breanna Casey. Kate Rorick is the co-showrunner and an executive producer alongside Dean Devlin, and executive producers Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson of Electric Entertainment. John Rogers and Chris Downey are consulting producers.

IMDb TV uniquely offers premium Originals on a free streaming service including the upcoming dramedy Pretty Hard Cases, premiering September 10. Spanning drama and comedy, scripted and unscripted, additional IMDb TV Originals include the Untitled Judge Judy Sheindlin Project, a Bosch spinoff; the comedy series Sprung; the Untitled Jeff Lewis Project – a new home design series; On Call from executive producer Dick Wolf; and second seasons of Alex Rider and Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers.

Hand Made Productions Announces “The Tent Mender”





Hand Made Productions Announces “The Tent Mender,” A Profoundly Moving Documentary Series on People Experiencing Homelessness, in Partnership with P&G
The series will be exclusively available to stream on August 6 on IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service.

Hand Made Productions Announces The Tent Mender, a Profoundly Moving Documentary Series on People Experiencing Homelessness, in Partnership with P&G

LOS ANGELES — Hand Made Productions, is proud to announce the release of a limited three-part series, The Tent Mender, a documentary film spotlighting people experiencing homelessness. Filmed entirely in the heart of Skid Row, it introduces raw, inspirational, and true stories. The series will be exclusively available to stream on August 6 on IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service.

Directed by filmmaker and founder of Hand Made Productions, Laura Hand, and voiced by Emmy-award-winning, acclaimed actor and humanitarian Peter Coyote. “The Tent Mender is a fictional character whose story of service to others helps him find redemption. Through his journey of self-discovery, we experience an intimate look that helps us see the humanity in all of us,” said filmmaker Laura Hand. Ted, Jocelyn, Dusty, and others share their personal and candid testimony illustrating hardship but also hope. “One of the things that interested me about this project was the deeper meaning of The Tent Mender,” said Coyote. “The Tent Mender is a metaphor for mending life. And if he can do that, there’s always some way we can be helpful.”

When P&G heard about the film, they saw an opportunity to help those in need, ultimately leading to creating the first permanent Tide Loads of Hope laundry room within the Midnight Mission. “Helping families in times of crisis has long been our core mission.” said Amy Krehbiel, Tide Brand Vice President. The new laundry room was built in partnership with Gensler Architecture, Clark Construction, and Whirlpool brand, bringing together companies who took the initiative to act as a force for good.

Another great part of this program is that viewers can take action and support the Midnight Mission. They will be able to either donate essential items from The Midnight Mission AmazonSmile Charity List, which Amazon delivers directly to the charity, or make a monetary donation to the Tide Loads of Hope Fund. Viewers can also set The Midnight Mission as their AmazonSmile charity, so when they shop at smile.amazon.com, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate a portion of their eligible orders to the Midnight Mission.

The series includes original songs by Domestic Human Rights Award winner Michael Franti. In addition to BAFTA Best Original Music at Award winners Lukas Nelson and MILCK. “One of the things that really gives me the most meaning is to be able to sit down one-on-one and share a song. And I feel really blessed and grateful that Ted has entrusted me with his story,” said Franti.

The project was spear-headed by Tom Sebastian, of the BroknWorks Collective, who brought together people with a shared vision. “The Tent Mender became the voice within us all, to be part of something larger than yourself,” commented Sebastian.

Supported in partnership with P&G and co-produced by Emmy-nominated studio The Story Lab, the effort was led by Kimberly Doebereiner, Executive Producer and Head of P&G Studios, and Marc Pritchard, P&G Chief Brand Officer. The Tent Mender is the latest in the growing list of thought-provoking storytelling from P&G – joining the Queen Collective Films, 8:46 Films, The Cost of Winning, CODED and many others.

“We believe in the power of stories to shine the light on important issues facing our communities and inspire acts of good where our brands can make a meaningful difference,” Pritchard said. “When things become personal, empathy grows. The Tent Mender will touch hearts with a new and more intimate perspective on people facing homelessness,” added Doebereiner.

IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service, is available as an app on Fire TV and a free Channel within the Prime Video and IMDb apps across hundreds of devices. IMDb TV is also available as an app on third-party devices, including Roku, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Sony Android TV devices, Chromecast with Google TV, LG Smart TVs, PlayStation 4 consoles, NVIDIA Shield, and TiVo Stream 4K.

IMDb TV PICKS UP SEASON ONE OF BUDDY-COP DRAMA SERIES “PRETTY HARD CASES,” PREMIERING SEPTEMBER 10

CULVER CITY, Calif. – August 4, 2021 – IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service, announced today the season one pickup of the 10-episode drama Pretty Hard Cases. The fun and irreverent buddy-cop series follows two radically different female detectives in their early 40s. Season one of Pretty Hard Cases will be available to stream exclusively on IMDb TV in the U.S. starting Friday, September 10. The official show trailer is available now.

The action-packed series follows two women who are at the top of their respective games: the optimistic, over-achieving guns and gangs detective, Samantha Wazowski (Meredith MacNeill, Baroness von Sketch Show) and the tough, unapologetic drug squad detective, Kelly Duff (Adrienne C. Moore, Orange Is the New Black). It’s not until their chance meeting during a takedown that Sam and Kelly realize they’re going after the same target… and they couldn’t disagree more on strategy, and pretty much everything else. However, they are forced to put their differences aside in their quest to dismantle the Stockwoods, a Toronto street gang dealing drugs and wreaking havoc on the community. As the season unfolds, we’ll learn that despite their differences, they’re both grappling with loneliness, dysfunctional families, screwed-up love lives, and a sense that their professional ambitions may not be totally in line with their personal needs. Through various experiences, they learn that their unlikely friendship may be exactly what they need to help them find balance on and off the job… if only they didn’t drive one another utterly insane.

Pretty Hard Cases stars Meredith MacNeill, Adrienne C. Moore, Tara Strong, Karen Robinson, Dean McDermott, Al Mukadam, Percy Hynes White, and Katie Douglas.

Commissioned by CBC, Canada’s national public broadcaster, Pretty Hard Cases is produced by Cameron Pictures in association with CBC and NBCUniversal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group. The series is created by Sherry White (Little Dog, Frontier, Ten Days in the Valley, Rookie Blue) and Tassie Cameron (Mary Kills People, Ten Days in the Valley, Rookie Blue, The Robber Bride), who also serve as co-showrunners. Sherry White, Tassie Cameron, Amy Cameron, and Alex Patrick are executive producers. Wanda Chaffey produces and Caledonia Brown associate produces. The series is distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.

IMDb TV uniquely offers premium Originals on a free streaming service including the upcoming docuseries series Luke Bryan: My Dirt Road Diary, premiering August 6. Spanning drama and comedy, scripted and unscripted, additional IMDb TV Originals include the heist drama Leverage: Redemption; a Bosch spinoff; the comedy series Sprung; the Untitled Jeff Lewis Project – a new home design series; the dramedy High School; On Call from executive producer Dick Wolf; second seasons of Alex Rider and Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers; Bug Out; and the Untitled Judy Sheindlin Project – the streaming debut for no-nonsense, expeditious Judge Sheindlin and her signature adjudication style.

IMDb TV will obtain an additional window to stream UFEG’s 2020-2021 slate of theatrical releases, featuring titles such as Dolittle, The Invisible Man, F9 (Fast & Furious 9), and Sing 2, with full exclusivity across AVOD and SVOD, during the license period.
