Court TV Gets Trial by Jury

Court TV has acquired the rights to 13 episodes of NBC’s failed Law & Order offshoot series, Trial by Jury.

Beginning in December, Court TV will air 12 episodes of the short-lived skein initially telecast by NBC, as well as one never-before-seen show, according to network executives.

The series, which stars Bebe Neuwirth (Cheers), was canceled by NBC last season.
