Kate Walsh is batting a high percentage when it comes to television, as Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and most recently Fargo have each left their mark on the landscape. With years of TV and film experience, Walsh is stepping up her duties behind the camera as an executive producer on the upcoming NBC series Bad Judge.
The show, which should play to Walsh’s timing rich comedic skills, centers on a Rebecca Wright, a Los Angeles criminal court judge who doesn’t play it safe in regards to her social life. It’s a wild streak which obviously gets her into trouble, but Wright’s intelligence and street smarts usually gets her back on track.
During the interviews for Bad Judge, I asked her about the benefits of producing as well as acting on the show. Check out the video below for her answer.
Bad Judge, created by actress Anne Heche, debuts October 2 on NBC (9 pm et/pt).
