It’s been the year of revivals and reboots, and as it comes to a close, there’s another to add to that list. This time a network, Court TV, is expected to come back on air next year.
Katz Networks is relaunching the network as part of The E.W. Scripps Company, which acquired Court TV’s intellectual property, including its trademark, website and 100,000 hours of original content from Turner Broadcasting.
The new Court TV will make its debut in May, will run 24 hours a day, with coverage and analysis from trials, every day of the week and will be available for cable, satellite, over-the-air and over-the-top carriage.
“Today, while consumer interest in the real-life drama of true-crime programming is at an all-time high, there is no dedicated daily court coverage on television,” said Jonathan Katz, president and CEO of Katz Networks, in a prepared statement.
