MGM plans to debut two new syndicated strips for fall 2019, with Variety reporting that the company will be distributing the half-hour shows “The Drama” and “Personal Injury Court.”

“’Drama’ revolves around a cast of experts giving humorous advice to people for problems submitted via social media,” Variety reports. “’Personal Injury Court’ offers a more detailed look at cases involving claims of personal injuries. MGM hopes both shows will attract station buyers at the NATPE conference in Miami later this month.”

The report quotes Barry Poznick, president of unscripted television for MGM, saying: “With the recent renewals of our popular syndicated court strips ‘Paternity Court’ and ‘Couples Court,’ and now the addition of ‘Personal Injury Court’ and ‘The Drama,’ we are doubling down on our commitment to bring high-quality daytime programming to viewers.”

Variety adds: “’Personal Injury Court’ hails from David Armour, the producer behind MGM’s other court show strips. Judge Gino Brogdon presides over the made-for-TV hearings, which will include the use of video, reenactments and witness testimony. Armour and Poznick are exec producers.”
