Sarah Palin’s reality show has been cancelled even before the courtroom series began airing.
Palin who was the former governor of Alaska was supposed to star in the courtroom reality show as a Judge Judy-esque host, but that is no longer to happen.
According to Radar Online report Palin was said to have failed to ‘resonate’ with test audiences because she has no legal training.
Production Source told the media outfit that ”Though Sarah has obvious talent as a commentator, she didn’t resonate with the audience as a judge.”
However, the former governor as learned was signed on to the show by Montana-based production company Warm Spring last year, with high hopes that Sarah Palin’s reality show would be picked up by networks after the pilot phase but audiences’ reactions Palin’s no legal training stopped the production in its tracks.
Producers of the show had approached Palin for the courtroom show in 2015 under the arrangement she works alongside TV executive Larry Lyttle who helped perfect the Judge Judy formula.
Lyttle had earlier told TMZ that Palin would be presiding over the ‘court of common sense’.
Saying “She’s appointed judges and is well equipped as a former governor to preside over cases,”.
On the part of the show producers, the former governor’s lack of legal training shouldn’t be a barrier for her not to take up the show.
”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,’ one of the producers reportedly stated.
For Reigning reality TV judge Judy Sheindlin she didn’t see Palin’s appearance on the show as a threat, stressing ‘It’s open territory. You just have to use your common sense and know a little bit about the law,’ she told TMZ in March last year.
Meanwhile, this is the second time Sarah Palin’s reality show has been axed. In 2011 her Alaska was cancelled after just one season
