New York — Law&Crime, the leading 24/7 true crime and live trial network, is adding the hit viral show, Caught in Providence, to its primetime programming lineup. Law&Crime will start airing episodes on Monday, November 16th.
Caught in Providence from Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury takes viewers to Providence Municipal Court in Rhode Island where Judge Frank Caprio delivers everyday justice with heart and humor. With real cases and real people, Judge Caprio uses empathy and a “no nonsense” approach to each case he presides over. From wacky excuses to heartfelt moments, Caught in Providence provides an example of what compassionate justice can look like.
“Law&Crime is thrilled to bring Caught In Providence and Judge Caprio to our viewers and couldn’t imagine a better fit for the network,” said Andrew Eisbrouch, COO of Law&Crime. “With over 250 episodes already produced, we look forward to adding more great, compelling legal programming to our schedule.”
The show comes to Law&Crime with an enormous social media following of over eight million Facebook followers and one million YouTube followers after two successful years in syndication.
“Caught In Providence has found the perfect home at Law&Crime Network,” commented Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, co-presidents of producer-distributor Debmar-Mercury. “We can’t think of a better time to bring a feel-good social media sensation like Judge Caprio to its audience.” Viewers can watch Caught in Providence on Law&Crime Network Monday through Friday with back to back half hour episodes 8 p.m.-9 p.m. EST starting November 16th.
