Sarah Palin is ready to bring her folksy, backwoods wisdom to court.

People reported Tuesday that Palin has signed a deal to bring a reality court series to television in 2017. Palin came to prominence during her unsuccessful 2008 campaign for vice president, alongside John McCain, and stayed in the public eye thanks to her 2009 resignation from the Alaska governorship. She has been bouncing around Fox News and outdoor reality shows ever since.

Warm Springs, the production company responsible for TV shows such as “Buck Commander” and “Cougar V. Wolf,” signed a deal with Palin in February, after approaching her with the concept last year.

Since then, the production company has put together a team that includes executives responsible for the syndicated courtroom staples “Judge Judy” and “Judge Joe Brown.”

Despite the fact that Palin has never practiced law (related almost entirely to the fact that she has no law degree) Warm Springs seems confident that Palin will be able to coast on personality.

Palin most recently made headlines in January when she officially endorsed Donald Trump for president of the United States.
