Gloria Allred -- known on AOL Jobs for involvement in such titillating cases as the woman who claimed to have been fired for being too sexy as well as the case of another woman who asserts she was let go because her breasts were too large -- will now have her own television show called 'We the People with Gloria Allred.'
Allred has been involved in some of the most publicized cases and issues of the day, including O.J. Simpson
, Michael Jackson
, Scott Peterson
and Tiger Woods, as well as one of the earliest sexual abuse suits against the Catholic Church. At the same time, she has also played a role in many groundbreaking legal decisions, according to a statement from series producer Entertainment Studios
, a large, independent producer and distributor of first-run syndicated television programming for broadcast stations.
Few details about the format of the show have been released, but Entertainment Studios is also behind 'America's Court with Judge Ross.' The new show will be taped in Los Angeles.
"Quite often a Gloria Allred case is the lead story on the news across the nation. Gloria Allred is the perfect lawyer to be on a television court show which can serve as the ultimate news lead-in," said Byron Allen, founder, chairman and CEO of Entertainment Studios.
"I've always been passionate about the law, and I'm very excited about this show," Allred said. "I am fully committed to making 'We the People' a huge success; and yes, I will absolutely continue to practice law with my brilliant partners." Allred is a founding partner of Allred, Maroko & Goldberg.
