A clip from the upcoming episode shows millennial roommates battling it out in the courtroom over relationship issues, rental payments, and alleged domestic abuse. While the daytime series, which comes from the producers of “Judge Judy” is similar in format to other court shows, it has a unique three-judge panel and allows viewers to see deliberations within the chambers.

In the sneak peek, we see more gruesome battles ensue as the original Sky People, played by Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos and Lindsey Morgan, are forced to move to a new planet after a disaster at the end of Season 5 leaves Earth uninhabitable.

Netflix has released the first trailer for its new live action series, “No Good Nick.” The family-friendly drama, which will debut on April 15, follows 13 year-old Nick, played by Siena Agudong as she infiltrates a family in the hopes of getting revenge. But, as the trailer foreshadows, the first season will see the young protagonist find compassion for her chosen rivals, played by Sean Astin, Melissa Joan Hart, Lauren Lindsey Donzis and Kalama Epstein.

Ruby Jay, best known for her leading role in Hulu’s “Holly Hobbie” has just been cast to play Grace in the forthcoming CBS series “The Unicorn.” The comedy will follow Grace, a pre-teen eager to grow up as she begins to develop crushes on the opposite sex and deals with her newly divorced dad, played by Walton Goggin, starting to date again.
