Nancy Grace to be replaced by O.J. Simpson judge on 'Swift Justice'
After just one season on the syndicated justice television show, "Swift Justice," THR reports that Nancy Grace has given her final judgment of the series.
"Leaving such a successful show was a tough decision," Grace says. "But, with the increased requirements of the production's relocation to Los Angeles, it became challenging to balance my most important job -- mother to John David and Lucy back home. I will miss the California sunshine for now, but I will be back soon.
Jackie Glass will be taking her position at the bench in Season 2. Glass is most remembered for presiding over the case that sent O.J. Simpson to jail for his participation in a Las Vegas hotel robbery in 2008.
"'Swift Justice' has had an incredible freshman year," executive producer John Terenzio says. "And we're thrilled to have been nominated for an Emmy earlier this month. I want to thank Nancy for all her contributions toward making the show a success. We are sad to see her leave, but we respect her decision to do what's best for her family. At the same time, we're excited to introduce viewers to another true original Judge Jackie Glass -- we are confident our viewers will enthusiastically embrace her."
Season 2 begins in September.
