Former "Divorce Court" judge Mablean Ephriam has been tapped for a new court show from Entertainment Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ephriam, a former Los Angeles prosecuting attorney who sat on the bench on "Divorce Court" from 1999 to 2006, will star in "Justice with Judge Mablean," the story says. The project marks the fifth court program from Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios.
Ephriam’s signature phrase was, "Look deep before you leap." She also portrayed a judge in Tyler Perry’s Madea movies.
