HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IC Punch Media, Inc. (OTCQB: PNCH) announced today it has acquired forty (40) episodes of "The Hollywood Judge" to be aired this fall. Produced by Emmy Award Winning James Allen Bradley and Sammy Riotti, this is not your typical Judge show.

VU TV Network President Gayle Dickie remarked, "There's always a good audience on hand for courtroom type shows and The Hollywood Judge adds a bit of a celebrity slant to the mix that is entertaining and sometimes jaw dropping, perfect for late fringe time periods." Steve Samblis, CEO of IC Punch Media also commented, "I'm a big proponent of entertainment type programming and The Hollywood Judge is very engaging with a unique offering for late night viewers."
Created by James Allen Bradley and Sammy Riotti, the "The Hollywood Judge" boasts a bonanza of reality stars including Daniel Baldwin, Erick Estrada, Carney and Wendy Wilson, Ron Jeremy, Prince Von Anhalt and Bobby Trendy, just to name a few. Bradley added, "We are pleased to announce we are already planning our Season 2."
