Orion Television's COUPLES COURT Coming to National Syndication This Fall
Lauren Lake's Paternity Court

Orion Television, a subsidiary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., will premiere COUPLES COURT, a new syndicated, half-hour, year-round weekday strip from David Armour, the creator and executive producer of Orion's first Syndicated daytime court show, Emmy-nominated Lauren Lake's Paternity Court. Legal experts and award-winning trial attorneys Dana and Keith Cutler will be the first-ever married couple to preside over the television courtroom in this fresh new court show where couples in crisis come to share their stories of cheating and get help from the ultimate authorities: a husband and wife team who, for nearly 30 years, have been married and practicing law together in the same thriving firm. Couples Court will debut in Fall, 2017 and has already been picked up in 18 of the top 20 markets, covering 73% of the U.S. including stations in the Tribune, CBS and Sinclair groups, as well as Weigel, Cox, Scripps and Titan stations.

The Cutlers are graduates of the University of Missouri - Kansas City School of Law. They will serve as passionate advocates, providing guidance to couples facing dysfunction and distrust.

In the search for truth, the Cutlers will use technology including GPS, DNA, deleted emails, video surveillance, cell phone forensics and surprise witnesses to confirm or dispel accusations of cheating and deception.

"As we have seen with Lauren Lake's Paternity Court, there is a demand for engaging daytime entertainment and Couples Court is sure to offer the same real-life drama that keeps audiences tuning in day after day," says John Bryan, President of MGM Domestic Television Distribution. "We are encouraged by the brisk reception in the marketplace and look forward to clearing the show in the remaining parts of the country."

"'Court' is a genre that performs well on our stations, and we are pleased to add Couples Court to the program lineup," said Arthur Hasson, COO Programming, Sinclair Broadcast Group. "Having a team of judges who are married gives them unique perspective and insight. The fact that they are entertaining makes it even better. "

Couples Court is produced by 79th & York Entertainment and distributed by Orion TV Productions (Orion Television).
