Belvin Perry, the Florida judge who gained national notoriety for presiding over the Casey Anthony trial, isn't getting his own television show. The producers behind the tentatively titled Judge Belvin Perry Show decided to pull the plug on production because there wasn't interest from television stations.
Jim Lichtenstein, the show's producer, said he tried shopping the show for a fall 2014 launch. "While all of the syndicators really like Judge Perry, they are just not buying any judge shows," he said. "The consensus was that the interest in new judge shows is pretty much gone."
Since Perry can't miss what he never had, Lichtenstein said Perry will remain as a judge in Orlando.- - Jordan Valinsky
