Dick Wolf’s one-hour reality court show with the working title “You the Jury” will join the NBC slate, the network announced Friday.
The show, which will be live and will let viewers decide the verdict in real-life civil cases, joins Wolf’s other NBC programs that include “Law and Order: SVU” and the recently greenlit “Chicago Med.” It’s also the latest in a trend for NBC, which has been focusing on live TV in recent years with musicals like December’s “Peter Pan Live!” and, as Variety reported this week, is in discussions for a variety show starring Maya Rudolph that would accompany the upcoming one starring Neil Patrick Harris.
Wolf will exec produce the show with Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz and Tom Thayer. The show is co-produced by Wolf’s Wolf Reality and Magical Elves. The shingles previously worked together on the TNT nonfiction series “Cold Justice,” and its spinoff “Cold Justice Sex Crimes,” which launches in July.
Wolf Reality and Magical Elves are repped by WME.
