Sarah Palin Eyed for Daytime Court TV Series

Sarah Palin is taking the law into her own hands.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate has agreed to appear in a courtroom reality show similar to "Judge Judy."

Palin has signed a deal with the Montana-based production company Warm Springs, and will shoot a pilot to sell to a network, according to People, which broke the news. The team working on the show includes executives who helped develop "Judge Judy" and "Judge Joe Brown."

Dsepite Palin's political experience, she has never practiced law nor does she have a law degree. Other courtroom show stars like Judy Sheindlin and Joe Brown have served as actual judges before getting their own shows.

Palin operated her own online news network, the Sarah Palin Channel, before closing it last year. She also hosts the hunting series "Amazing America with Sarah Palin" on the Sportsman Channel.

Palin officially endorsed Donald Trump for President in January. "I'm proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for president," Sarah Palin said in a statement provided by his campaign.

Trump is "greatly honored to receive Sarah's endorsement," he said in response, adding: "She is a friend, and a high-quality person whom I have great respect for. I am proud to have her support."

Last year, Trump said he'd love to have Palin as part of a Trump administration. Palin backed Ted Cruz for Senate in 2012 and has praised both him and Trump during the 2016 primary season.
