According to Entertainment Weekly, Byrd found out about the new series the same way everyone else did. Judge Judy Sheindlin announced the news during an episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show in March 2020.

“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 told Entertainment Weekly.

Randy Douthit and Amy Freisleben continue to executive produce the new series, Judy Justice, on IMDb TV.
