MGM-owned Orion TV Productions is slated to debut Personal Injury Court on Sept. 16, in which Judge Gino Brogdon presides over high-charged personal injury cases.
The series uses videos, testimony, accident recreation and eye-witness accounts to determine the responsible party for injuries presented in each case.
Brogdon worked as a trial lawyer for a number of Atlanta firms before serving nearly 10 years on the trial bench Fulton County, Georgia. In that time, he presided over civil cases worth billions of dollars including gun litigation, wrongful death, product liability, catastrophic injury and others.
“I love this show because the cases have some of the largest claims in TV history. Personal Injury Court is like a game show meets a court show… with stakes, drama, theatrics of ripped from the headlines true stories,” said Barry Poznick, president of unscripted television at MGM, in a statement.
Personal Injury Court hails from 79th & York Entertainment president David Armour, the same creator and executive producer behind Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court, currently entering its seventh season, and Couples Court with the Cutler, kicking off its third season. Along with Armour, Poznick serves as executive producer. The show is also produced by 501 East Entertainment.
Lou Dennig is co-executive producer and the series is directed by Stacie Saugen Joseph.
