"'Swift Justice' is a high energy, next-generation court show," said executive producer John Terenzio. "With all the digital technology in the world today, we thought, 'why can't
we create a road to Nancy and bring America to her?' And that is exactly what we have done with 'Swift Justice.' We're keeping all the elements of a traditional court show, but we're adding a passionate star with a larger-than-life personality, who really wants to be accessible to the everyday viewer and resolve their legal issues."
