A TV courtroom situation would be defined as one person suing another for monetary damages for breach of contract, bad customer service, etc., much like in real life.
Hatchett's drama is only half that. If she wants to rubberneck people's problems with her show, send people on those 'reality checks', drag out all that DNA baby daddy junk (which there's already too many shows about),why not just do a regular talk show? What's the point of having a courtroom drama? She's just in the wrong format.
On the surface she looks like she's trying to 'make a difference', but on the other hand looks kinda transparent. Example - asking bickering couples for details about why their relationships ain't working even though it looks totally irrelevant to the the issues in the cases before her.
There's already been way too many talk shows AND courtroom dramas done in the past 20 years but my point is since she wants to get in people's personal business instead of resolving legal issues half the time, she might as well host a talk show.
have a great day.
