CBS renews Sheindlin’s contract through 2020. The contract includes a production deal with Sheindlin’s company.
I’m thrilled to be working with my CBS family for five more years and very excited about this new adventure in production.
Armando Nunez, president and CEO of the CBS Global Distribution Group:
She is a true television icon who entertains and inspires millions of fans each day on Judge Judy. We look forward to continuing to provide our station partners with her highly successful show and to working with her to create the next generation of hits.
Sheindlin and Wendy discuss her new book What Would Judy Say? on The Wendy Williams Show.
I was a get by girl.
Judge Judy shares her thoughts on friend Rivers:
Joan was one of those people and she can’t be replaced, you’re absolutely right there are some people who just are so important to our history but more than that knowing her personally she was one of the kindest, most generous gracious ladies.
Sheindlin reacts to the death of Rivers:
There won’t be another one like her in our lifetime. Aside from her tremendous talent, she was gracious, giving and honest. She was a one-of-a-kind lady. I’ll miss her.”
Sheindlin is presented with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her work in the category of Television. Her family as well as friends Merv Griffin and Cheri Oteri attend the affair in support of Sheindlin.
Without the producers, this couldn’t happen. Without the crew, the lighting crew – especially the lighting crew – who have worked with me all of these years and kept me looking younger every year, I wouldn’t want to be out here today. All of these people are responsible for this star.
