Mixing a little bit of the old with the new for the upcoming courtroom series, a few familiar faces from two other CBS shows she presided over; “Judge Judy” and “Hot Bench” will be featured on the panel series.
Sheindlin’s longtime bailiff Petri Hawkins Byrd will serve in the same role for the new show starring Judges Tanya Acker and Patricia DiMango, and Sheindlin’s son, former Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy.
According to Amazon, the panel of three judges will adjudicate real cases, using a video element to allow viewers to follow the events surrounding each case.
“Tribunal is an exciting new format which combines traditional court with a video-enhanced presentation,” Sheindlin said in a statement. “The panel of judges offer a dynamic combination of different backgrounds, experiences, and opinions that are unique, unparalleled, and compelling.”
