Allumination Filmworks Is Proud to Release the First DVD From Everyone's Favorite No-Nonsense Judge -- Judge Judy Sheindlin

JUDGE JUDY: JUSTICE SERVED Premiering on DVD This September

WOODLAND HILLS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/09/07 -- Television's most popular judge, Judge Judy Sheindlin, is bringing her unique brand of justice to the DVD market. The first ever "Judge Judy" DVD will hit the shelves to coincide with the 12th season of "Judge Judy," which premieres on Sept. 10, 2007.

Distributed by Allumination FilmWorks, in conjunction with CBS Television Distribution, JUDGE JUDY: JUSTICE SERVED will chronicle some of Judge Judy's most memorable cases from the last 11 years, as well as notable interviews with top journalists and never-before-seen footage of the famous jurist.

Sheindlin began working in family court in 1972, prosecuting juvenile delinquency cases for the state of New York. In 1982, then New York Mayor Edward Koch appointed Sheindlin to the Family Court bench, where she served for 14 years. When "Judge Judy" premiered in 1996, it was an immediate smash -- a provocative, sometimes controversial, and always entertaining exploration of the justice system.

In addition to some of her classic cases, JUDGE JUDY: JUSTICE SERVED includes "Judyisms," featuring some of her famous sayings from the bench; footage of Sheindlin receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; "Judge Judy" promos; and two profiles of Sheindlin that originally aired on the CBS newsmagazine "60 Minutes."

Kerry McCluggage, Chairman, Allumination FilmWorks, says, "Our company is very proud to be involved in such a prestigious project. We have really enjoyed working with CBS Television Distribution and are confident that fans and new viewers will be engrossed in the extras that offer a new take on this award-winning television series."

For more than a decade, Sheindlin has been a household name. "Judge Judy," which will premiere its 12th season in syndication on September 10, has been the # 1 syndicated half-hour court show on television since its inception. On the show, Sheindlin represents, as only she can, the long arm of the law -- dispensing wisdom and justice with wry observations and devastating putdowns, but always with a sense of honesty and integrity. Her no-nonsense approach has endeared her to millions of viewers and continues to do so.

"Judge Judy" has been nominated for 10 Daytime Emmy Awards, and last year Sheindlin became the first real-life judge to receive a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Sheindlin has also written several best-selling books, including "Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining," "Beauty Fades, Dumb is Forever" and "Keep It Simple, Stupid" -- three of her most unforgettable on-air "Judyisms."

Allumination FilmWorks will support the JUDGE JUDY: JUSTICE SERVED DVD with an extensive nationwide advertising and p.r. campaign. The overall launch will be tied to the show's 12th season, and will include television advertising flights in September and November 2007 as well as online advertising on the official "Judge Judy" website.
