De Bont to produce series

Thesp John Corbett (“Northern Exposure”) has been tapped to star in “The Judger,” Fox’s upcoming sci-fi syndie drama skein from helmer Jan De Bont (Daily Variety , Oct. 5).

Corbett will play the title character, a lawman in 21st century Mars who is called on to settle disputes and dispense justice in the grand tradition of the hanging judges of the Old West. Series, set to bow next fall, will be produced by De Bont’s Blue Tulip Prods., Mindless Entertainment and Fox TV Studios and distributed by Twentieth TV.

“I’m excited to be involved with ‘The Judger’ because each week we can make a mini-movie,” said De Bont, director of action pics “Speed” and “Twister.”
