ITV has been shooting a new daytime TV show at the Dock10 studios in MediaCityUK.
Judge Rinder’s court will open next week, in the hope of emulating the Judge Judy format, which is one of the highest rated programmes in the US. Its star, Judith Sheindlin earns around $47m a year.
Rinder has previously instructed cases including the New Year’s Eve shootings of Leticia Shakespeare and Charlene Ellis, as well as the manslaughter of Iraqi detainees by British soldiers.
However, in his television court, Judge Rinder will adjudicate over some real small claims cases, from dud cars to “dodgy” wedding photographers.
The first show airs on Monday 11th August at 2pm.
