RTL gets another judge: Judge Barbara Salesch comes back

In a nostalgic double whammy, RTL not only brings Salesch back to television, but also Ulrich Wetzel, known from "The Criminal Court". Both get their own shows. They stand for one of the trend formats of the 2000s: judges who negotiate fictitious cases.

The wave of nostalgia continues to spill through TV: RTL surprisingly brings judge Barbara Salesch back. Judge Ulrich Wetzel, who became known through "The Criminal Court", should also have his own program. The broadcaster announced this.

Barbara Salesch became known through her court show "Richterin Barbara Salesch" and was an integral part of the Sat.1 afternoon program from 1999 until her last show in 2012. The most famous case in her show was probably the 1999 neighborhood dispute over the wire mesh fence, which inspired Stefan Raab to write his own song. At the very beginning of the show, it was still about real arbitration cases, later fictitious criminal court cases were raised. Now RTL is surprisingly bringing Salesch back to TV.

Ulrich Wetzel, known from the RTL court show "Das Strafgericht" (2002-2008), should also have his own show. "The broadcast and title of both formats have not yet been determined," explains RTL on Twitter.

Both main actors of the old formats worked as lawyers before their job on TV. Salesch, now 72, worked as a judge at the Hamburg Regional Court before she was given leave to work in television. She has been artistically active since she left TV - all the more surprising is her return to the screen. The 65-year-old Wetzel was seen in "The Criminal Court" from 2002 to 2008 and, according to RTL, was the director of the district court in Seligenstatt.

With "Richter Barbara Salesch", "Richter Alexander Hold", "Das Strafgericht" or "Das Familiengericht", court programs enjoyed great popularity as a genre in their own right, especially in the 2000s. After that, the interest of the viewers and with it the number of court shows decreased significantly. How the viewers of the 2020s will take the court shows remains to be seen.
