NBC has handed an early pilot order to Bad Judge, a single-camera comedy starring and executive produced by former Private Practice star Kate Walsh. The single-camera project, from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Prods and actress Anne Heche, was written by Chad Kultgen (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) based on an idea brought to Gary Sanchez by Heche. It centers on a hard-living, sexually unapologetic woman (Walsh) who plays with the law, and whose life on the edge is constantly in balance as she also happens to be a judge in the criminal court system. Universal TV, where Gary Sanchez Prods. and Heche have deals, is producing. Heche and Jill Messick executive produce alongside Walsh, Kultgen, Ferrell and McKay. Bad Judge was a late pitch buy last development season, and emerged as a contender for an off-cycle pilot order in March when Walsh started circling the project. Read More »

EXCLUSIVE: As she is wrapping her starring turn on ABC’s Private Practice, Kate Walsh is embarking on a producing career with a comedy project written by Retired At 35 creator Chris Case, which just sold to NBC. The untitled multi-camera half-hour, from 20th Century Fox TV, is loosely based on the personal experience of Walsh and Case, who are a couple. It centers on a recently divorced father of two pre-teen boys that quickly falls in love with a freewheeling woman cop who has little experience with children, while dealing with his ex-wife, who is now living with his best friend. Walsh and Case will executive produce with Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment.

This past summer, Walsh announced that she would be leaving Private Practice after 13 episodes of the current sixth season. Walsh, repped by CAA and Evolution, has played the character of Addison Montgomery for 7 years, starting on Grey’s Anatomy before she got her own spinoff Private Practice.
