The network has issued an official pilot contract for the sequel to the Emmy-nominated comedy series with the original star John LaRockett, which he joined The Big Bang Theory Melissa Rauch at the top of the invitation list.
The new Night court is based on the original series by creator Reinhold Widge and revolves around Abby Stone (Rauch), the daughter of the late Harry Stone (the late Harry Anderson), who follows in her father’s footsteps while presiding over the Manhattan Arrest Court and strange and cynical, including former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding (Larockett, who plays his Emmy-winning role).
Rauch brought the idea for Night court a sequel to Warner Bros. TV, where she is under a joint deal dating back to her time in the studio The Big Bang Theory. Rauch recently signed a role in the comedy after initially developing the project as an executive producer through its banner after January.
Dan Rubin (COM)Unbreakable Kimi Schmidt) will write the script and executive production with Rauch and her partner / husband after January Winston Rauch. Larroquette will also produce the comedy.
“My intention was purely to stand behind the camera of this project, but my plans quickly changed after I fell in love with the incredible script from Dan Rubin̵
Night court participated as part of the NBC lineup from Thursday 1984-92. Larroquette took home four Emmys playing Fielding, and the show also won three top comedy nominations.
