Judge Joe Brown
Judge Joe Brown became the first African-American prosecutor in the city of Memphis. He would later open his own law practice before becoming a judge on the State Criminal Court of Shelby County, Tennessee.
Brown was thrust into the national spotlight while presiding over James Earl Ray's last appeal proving Ray was not the shooter of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Judge Joe became a national icon when starring in the Emmy nominated Judge Joe Brown Show for 15 years bringing in 3.5 million viewers on a daily average.
Judge Joe Brown stepped behind the camera in 2012 to develop reality projects for cable with his producing partners, Aswaad English and Clifford Stewart of Celebritunity Studios.
But now he's back at it again, in an all new, nationally syndicated, daytime courtroom series titled "True Verdict with Judge Joe Brown" airing September 2016
