Former Judge Judy bailiff says he was never consulted before recast

Bailiff Petri Hawkins Byrd said he was “confused and dismayed” to be left out of discussions for the upcoming ‘Judge Judy’ spin-off series, ‘Judy Justice’

One of the crown jewels of daytime television programming, reality courtroom show “Judge Judy,” will take a new form in 2021 as a spin-off series on an entirely new platform — this time, without a familiar face.

Bailiff Petri Hawkins Byrd, who appeared alongside Judge Judy Sheindlin in over 4,000 episodes during the Emmy Award-winning show’s 25-year run, does not appear in the trailer for the show’s upcoming adaptation “Judy Justice,” causing an uproar from longtime fans.

Judge Judy Sheindlin’s longtime bailiff, Petri Hawkins-Byrd, spoke out about not being invited to join her on her new IMDB TV show, “Judy Justice,” after working with the celebrity for 25 years.

Byrd is perhaps best known to fans as the no-nonsense bailiff who made sure no one got out of line in the courtroom on “Judge Judy.” He was with the show until it finished in 2021. However, speaking in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Byrd explained that he wasn’t aware that Sheindlin was moving onto a new TV project until after it was already announced.

“My assumption is if you were going on to do something else, that you were at least going to ask me if I wanted to have the opportunity to audition for the role,” Byrd explained.

When IMBD released the trailer for the show, people seemed surprised that the courtman Bird wasn’t found anywhere and was replaced by former Judy guard Kevin Rasco. Shadelyn.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bird said he wasn’t informed about the new show. He said he found “Judge’s Justice” when it was announced at the Ellen DeGeneres Show in March 2020.
