Judge Hatchett is an American arbitration-based reality court show, produced and distributed by Sony Pictures Television Distribution. It starred The Honorable Glenda Hatchett and was modeled after other "court shows" such as Judge Judy and the long running The People's Court, as well as containing elements from tabloid talk shows such as Sally Jessy Raphael and Maury Povich. In addition to dealing with traditional small-claims lawsuits, she also handled DNA paternity tests and out of control teens. Originally, gentle and compassionate, Hatchett later became a scurrilous and scalding disciplinarian, intent on teaching young people a lesson by sending them on corrective trips. The show would follow these youths on the corrective trips that Hatchett sent them on. Judge Hatchett aired new episodes from 2000-2008, and has continued in reruns since. Judge Hatchett ran interventions for troubled teens. Among Judge Hatchett's recommendations for intervention and other help were Tommy the Clown, an eighteen-year-old mayor, prisons and Martin Luther King's daughter. At least once Judge Hatchett ran an intervention herself, running the building of an outdoor theater which ended up named after her as thanks.
