Bad Judge First Look: Kate Walsh Gets Wild With Ryan Hansen

Bad Judge Ryan Hansen

On NBC’s upcoming comedy Bad Judge (premiering Oct. 2 at 9/8c), Kate Walsh is enjoying the best of both worlds, working hard and partying even harder as the sexually unapologetic Rebecca. And when she’s not doing one of those two things, she’s hooking up with Veronica MarsRyan Hansen as her on- and off-again psychiatrist beau in TVLine’s exclusive first look.

“There’s part of [Rebecca] that’s still a college girl, partying, getting into trouble,” executive producer Adam McKay explains in the video below. “Then there’s another side of her that’s very grown up and that is a judge and, occasionally, surprises you by doing the right thing.”

Adds Walsh, who was eager to get back to her comedy roots, “She’s a little fantastic and kind of the best friend that you’ve always wanted and fabulous all at once.”

But Bad Judge‘s biggest selling point might be its homegrown origins. “This show is smart, sexy and made in the USA,” EP Will Ferrell says, while McKay (jokingly) points out that “we could have easily taken this show to China, cut down on our labor costs, cast Chinese actors who are very skilled.”

    I recalled Ryan Hansen when he played Candy Andy in Season Two of 2 Broke Girls and getting his freak on Beth Behrs’ Caroline Channing. Looks like his stint on Bad Judge is one of the new sitcoms of the Fall TV season viewers should definitely be “skipping”.

    • Rand says:

      The show sounds so much like “Bad Teacher”, only it’s a…you know… a judge.
      Partying hard, getting into trouble then grow a conscience and occasionally doing the right thing, and Ryan Hansen, I can smell cancellation already.

    I forgot Hansen was recast for the part! I was already going to check it out, but now I’m excited

    The “year of bad girls” at NBC?

    This sounds like “The Mysteries of Laura” but a broader comedy.

    I wonder if they’ve been prompted by “Orange is the New Black” or “Girls”?

    It’s been so long since NBC has had a honest, new concept, I automatically assume they’re piggy backing on proven concepts. At least this year I don’t see them offering another weak imitation of “Modern Family”.
