Making Money of Tragedy
Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. served on the Casey Anthony case. The Orlando Sentinel reports Perry is being pitched for a reality show by producer Jim Lichtenstein and Mark Itkin, agent from the William Morris Endeavor talent agency.
An Itkin bio lists some of the projects he has packaged: "The Real World," "Project Runway," "Hell's Kitchen," "Kitchen Nightmares," "Deal or No Deal," "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "Tyler Perry's House of Payne," "Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns," "Big Brother," "Fear Factor," "The People's Court," "American Gladiators," "The Biggest Loser" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."According to the article, Judge Perry and Perry and Lichtenstein are business partners. Lichtenstein got his agent Itkin to help get a Judge Perry reality show off the ground. ABC News has an interview with Perry. The Judge is definitely onboard to do a TV show. Caylee Marie Anthony is dead and Judge Belvin Perry Jr. will likely get highly paid for a terrible television show. This gives me little hope for the American justice system.
