Series About Judge Mathis’ Life Bought By Fox Network
A series based on Judge Greg Mathis’ life is in the works. Warner Brothers and Ellen Degeneres, who are producing the series, have already sold the series to Fox. The show will portray Mathis as “a hoodlum-turned-judge who has total control of his courtroom — and no control at home raising his four kids” (Deadline). Before becoming a judge, Mathis was a a gang member and even wound up in jail. He was able to turn things around and go to law school after his mother died of cancer. Rather than focusing on the dramatic side of Mathis’ life, the show will be a comedy. Are you interested to watch?
