Court TV unveils evening docket

Net's primetime to target younger, upscale auds

Court TV has greenlit a slate of programming repping the premiere lineup for its recently rebranded primetime, Court TV Seriously Entertaining.

Series were unveiled Thursday during the Television Critics Assn.’s summer press tour.

Court TV announced earlier this year that it was splitting its daytime and primetime (Daily Variety, March 30). Daytime, now called Court TV News, will continue to focus on trial coverage and related proceedings. Primetime, meanwhile, will target younger, more upscale auds via broader entertainment programming.

Court TV chief operating officer Art Bell called the slate “the next logical step” in the channel’s evolution.

The new series that will launch in the first quarter next year include the following:

  • “Las Vegas Law,” focused on the day to day of a Vegas attorney.

  • “SWAG,” a “Punk’d”-style skein that fools unknowing people into stealing seemingly unguarded goods.

  • “L.A. Forensics,” a behind-the-scenes look at the Los Angeles Police Dept.’s crime lab.

  • “San Diego Beach Patrol,” about a group of the city’s lifeguards and their efforts to keep the beaches safe.

  • “Five Days,” centered on major case squads, an elite grouping of local, state and federal agencies that gather to solve some of the most baffling cases.
