Gina Liano Hints ‘Judge Gina’ Court Show May Be Happening After All!

Gina Liano still holds hope for her courtroom reality show Judge Gina to make it to the small screen. During a recent interview, The Real Housewives Of Melbourne star gave an update on the Judge Judy-type show!

As we previously reported, the glamour barrister may be Australia's very own version of Judge Judy as the Foxtel reality star filmed a pilot for a legal-style show back in December 2014.

While no network has picked up the court room reality show, Liano hints that the show may be happening.

"I know how to get the information out of them that I will need to make a decision," she told The Daily Telegraph via The Daily Mail.

"A couple of networks are looking at it at the moment and there will be discussion fairly soon, so it is still on the boil and it would be a lot of fun," Gina added.

Gina has her plate full as the reality star recently made her theater debut in the family pantomime Cinderella.

Liano has taken on the role of the wicked stepmother, and the show is currently playing at the State Theatre in Sydney.

Earlier this year, Liano revealed that a few networks were interested in the courtroom series.

 “Both Nine and Channel Seven are looking at it and possibly Ten, according to my agent,” Liano told AAP via news.com.au. “Foxtel didn’t commission it but that was because of budget more than anything.”

Gina revealed that the team behind the pilot, McGuire Media, brought in Judge Joe Brown’s former executive producer John Terenzio to assist with the pilot.

“We flew the producer in from Judge Joe Brown, and who had worked on Judge Judy, so we had the Real McCoy working on it and I’m still in communication with him and he’s very keen to do it.”

However, she revealed that her decision on the proposed reality show would still be binding, she explained.

“A lot of them in the States (on judge reality shows) are magistrates or judges, I’m not appointed to the bench but my role would be to judge the participants, as an arbitrator,” she said. “I would be making a ruling on their dispute and it would effectively be binding through arbitration.”

The Real Housewives of Melbourne Season 3 will finally premiere in US at 9pm on Friday, July 22 on Bravo.
