Sarah Palin is preparing to trade in her parka for a robe.
The controversial Conservative, who is no longer a contributor on Fox News, has signed a contract with a production company named Warm Springs with the goal of starring in a Judge Judy-like reality series next year.
"It's a production deal," a source tells People of Palin's proposal to preside over a court room. "What happens next is she'll meet with stations, make a pilot and sell it."
Warm Springs went to Palin with this idea in 2015 and the company has since put together a team that includes the television executive who found Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown.
Both of those individuals were actual judges before they became reality TV stars, of course.
Palin is neither a judge nor a lawyer.
"Palin's telegenic personality, wide appeal and common sense wisdom make her a natural for this kind of format and she was Warm Springs' top pick for this project," the insider adds.
The proposed talk show would debut some time in 2017.
At the moment, Palin is in Alaska, caring for her husband Todd. He suffered serious injuries on March in a scary snowmobile accident.
