Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is slated to star in a courtroom-themed reality TV show that would premiere next year, according to people involved in the show's production.
"The producers of the show confirm to ABC that [Palin] has signed a production deal for a courtroom show. A pilot will be shot first," ABC News' Shushannah Walshe reported Tuesday.
The former governor and Donald Trump supporter reportedly signed an agreement last month with a production company called Warm Springs, according to People Magazine.
"It's a production deal," a source told the celebrity news group. "What happens next is she'll meet with stations, make a pilot and sell it."
Palin was first approached for the show in 2015. Warm Springs has since assembled a crew that includes the TV executive responsible for "Judge Judy" and "Judge Joe Brown."
Unlike the hosts of those two programs, however, Palin has no professional legal background.
The show's production team, for its part, maintains that the former governor is perfectly suited to play a judge on TV.
"Palin's telegenic personality, wide appeal and common sense wisdom make her a natural for this kind of format and she was Warm Springs' top pick for this project," People Magazine's source said.
