Twentieth TV renews court strips


Twentieth Television has renewed its court strips "Divorce Court," and "Judge Alex" through the 2008-09 season.

"Divorce Court," in its eighth season, recently introduced a new judge, Lynn Toler, while "Judge Alex," now in its second season, is presided over by Judge Alex Ferrer.

"As a leader in the court genre, we are proud that our flagship court program, 'Divorce Court,' and the popular 'Judge Alex' will remain a part of the family for years to come," Twentieth president and COO Bob Cook said. "Two prominent courtroom personalities combined with viewers' continued interest in the show's highly engaging court cases made the decision to renew a simple one."
