Former “Divorce Court” arbitrator Judge Mablean Ephriam is gearing up for a return to TV.
The popular television judge is slated to host a new daytime court series called “Justice with Judge Mablean.” The 30-minute court show will be produced by Entertainment Studios and is scheduled for a Fall 2014 debut.
“Justice with Judge Mablean” will be the fifth court series produced by Entertainment Studios, which has also helmed “America’s Court with Judge Ross,” “Justice for All With Judge Cristina Perez,” “We the People With Gloria Allred” and “Supreme Justice With Judge Karen.”
Judge Mablean hosted seven seasons of “Divorce Court” and left the show after failing to come to terms on a new contract with Fox.
The 64-year-old former Los Angeles prosecuting attorney has appeared on VH1’s “Celebrity Fit Club” and in three Tyler Perry films, “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” “Madea’s Family Reunion” and “Madea Goes to Jail.”
Judge Mablean was also the subject of a one of TV One’s “Life After” specials in 2012.
