Here’s the official summary of the show: Night Court
Originally, Melissa was only set to executive produce the show, but stepped into the lead role after reading the script.
“My intention was purely to be behind the camera on this project, but my plans quickly changed after falling in love with the incredible script from the brilliant mind of Dan Rubin,” she shared. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to join forces with Dan, the immense talent that is John Larroquette, and the two powerhouse institutions of comedy that are NBC and Warner Bros. to bring Night Court back to television.”
John will also be a producer on the series. He earned four Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy nominations during the original run of the show, and won them all.
Harry Anderson, who starred as judge Harry Stone in the original series, passed away in 2018.
