NBC Orders Pilot of 'Night Court' Reboot, Starring John Larroquette, Melissa Rauch
LOS ANGELES – NBC has ordered a pilot to a spinoff of the 1980s sitcom "Night Court," which will feature original star John Larroquette and Melissa Rauch ("Big Bang Theory").
The pilot, produced by Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, was written by Dan Rubin, formerly of "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," who will serve as executive producer and writer.
The series originally aired on NBC from 1984-1992, starring Harry Anderson as a quirky judge who worked the late shift at a Manhattan court house. Rauch will play the daughter of Anderson’s Judge Harry Stone who now presides over the same court and tries to bring order to its usual slew of oddballs, including former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding (Larroquette).
Larroquette was previously seen on “The Good Fight” on CBS All Access, and starred on the CBS comedy series “Me, Myself & I.” He also is known for ABC’s “The Practice” where he earned one of his five Emmys. The other four came for his work on "Night Court."
