Sheindlin’s new show is expected to be distributed by Sox Entertainment. Scott Koondel, CEO of the network, said he was thrilled to be a part of the upcoming show.

Sheindlin is most popular for her syndicated reality courtroom show “Judge Judy,” which has aired for over two decades. The show is expected to end production next year but will continue to air on CBS’s affiliate stations.

For hosting “Judge Judy” and producing another court showroom called “Hot Bench,” Sheindlin raked in an annual estimate of $47 million. She is reported to have a net worth of about $440 million.  

In addition to her thriving career, Sheindlin also enjoys a great marriage with her husband Jerry, whom she married in 1977. The couple’s union has yielded three children: Gregory, Jonathan, and Nicole. 


Though the two have been married for decades, they have had a fair share of rough patches in the past. This includes a divorce in 1990, about 14 years after getting married. The split was, however, short-lived, and they ended up reconciling.

A year after the divorce, Sheindlin, and Jerry remarried and have remained together ever since. Speaking about this, Sheindlin reportedly once said that she missed Jerry during their separation and admitted that she liked the idea of being partnered up.

With a career spanning through two decades and a successful marriage, Sheindlin has undoubtedly made a name for herself and has rightfully earned the title of an iconic legal entertainer.
