Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group (AMG) division Entertainment Studios proudly announces a ‘firm go’ for the creation and launch of its 68th and newest HD television series WE THE PEOPLE WITH JUDGE LAUREN LAKE. The new court series is a daily/strip one-hour block of programming for Fall 2022 available to broadcast television stations, as well as global cable, network, and digital distribution platforms.
In addition to broadcast syndication, all Entertainment Studios court programming is carried on Entertainment Studios Networks’ JUSTICECENTRAL.TV, which is available in over 50 million U.S. homes and is carried on Comcast, DirecTV, ATT U-Verse, Verizon FiOS, DISH, Altice, Charter/Spectrum, and other major cable carriers nationwide and globally.
