NURSE JACKIE's Liz Brixius to Run NBC's BAD JUDGE

NURSE JACKIE's Liz Brixius to Run NBC's BAD JUDGE

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Liz Brixius, co-creator of Showtime's NURSE JACKIE, has been tapped to run NBC's upcoming dark comedy BAD JUDGE, starring Kate Walsh.

The move marks a reunion for Brixius and network president Bob Greenblatt, who helped developed 'JACKIE' while he was still showtime. Brixius co-created the show with Linda Wallem.

No excuses, no apologies, no compromises. Wild child Rebecca Wright (Kate Walsh, "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice") knows how to have a good time, but she also happens to be one of L.A.'s toughest and most respected criminal court judges. She has a reputation for unorthodox behavior in the courtroom, including creative rulings and saying exactly what's on her mind. Her private life, on the other hand, is anything but innocent. She parties too much and rocks out on the drums in a band with her best friend, Jenny. While there's no shortage of male admirers who would love to spend time with her, she's not ready to settle down... except when an 8-year-old boy - whose parents were put in jail by Rebecca - needs her help. He may, in fact, be the one thing that starts to tame this "bad" judge.

The cast also includes John Ducey, Tone Bell and Theodore Barnes.

Writer Chad Kultgen ("The Incredible Burt Wonderstone") serves as executive producer with Adam McKay ("Anchorman," "Talladega Nights"), Will Ferrell ("Step Brothers"), Anne Heche ("Men in Trees"), Jill Sobel Messick ("Baby Mama"), Kevin Messick ("The Other Guys") and Kate Walsh. "Bad Judge" is a production of Universal Television and Gary Sanchez Productions.
