‘Night Court’ Sequel Starring John Larroquette, Melissa Rauch Ordered to Series at NBC
NBC has ordered a sequel to its classic comedy "Night Court" starring Melissa Rauch and John Larroquette, who repeats his role from the original, TheWrap has learned.
Here is the official logline for the new half-hour multi-cam show "Night Court", which NBC has been working on since December 2020 and is based on the original "Night Court" series by Reinhold Weege: Unapologetically optimistic Judge Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch), the daughter of the late Harry Stone, follows in her father's footsteps as she heads the night shift of a Manhattan prosecution trying to bring order to his crew of eccentrics and cynics, most notably former night court attorney Dan Fielding (John Larroquette).
The pilot “Night Court”, ordered by NBC in May 2021, is written by Dan Rubin and directed by Pamela Fryman. Executive producers on the series include Rubin, Fryman and Melissa Rauch, and her husband Winston Rauch for After January Productions. Larroquette is a producer.
The sequel to "Night Court" is from Warner Bros. Television, Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, and After January Productions.
Reinhold Weege's original "Night Court" was broadcast on NBC from 1984 to 1992 for nine seasons. Set on the night shift at a Manhattan city court, the series centered around Harry Anderson's young, unorthodox judge Harry Stone. Anderson and Larroquette played alongside Gail Strickland, Paula Kelly, Ellen Foley, Markie Post, Richard Moll, Selma Diamond, Florence Halop, Marsha Warfield, Karen Austin and Charles Robinson.
Larroquette won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor for four consecutive years for his role as Fielding from 1984 to 1988. Night Court won a total of seven Emmys during its entire run.
"My intention was to be solely behind the camera on this project, but my plans quickly changed after I fell in love with the incredible script of the brilliant mind of Dan Rubin," Rauch said in a statement as the pilot in the May was ordered. "I couldn't be more excited to team up with Dan, the immense talent of John Larroquette, and two powerful comedy institutions, NBC and Warner Bros., to bring Night Court back on TV."
