TVLine Items: Kate Walsh Plots TV Return, Fred Armisen Plans a Super Fun Night and More!
Kate Walsh is making her way back to TV in NBC’s comedy pilot Bad Judge.
From both Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions and Anne Heche (Save Me), the single-camera project stars the Private Practice alumna as a hard-living, sexually unapologetic woman whose life on the edge is balanced by the fact that she also happens to be a judge in the criminal court system.

Chad Kultgen (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) will pen the potential series.
Walsh toplined ABC’s Private Practice for six seasons until its cancellation last January.
