LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A new show created by TV's Judge Judy is set to debut this fall.

CBS Television Distribution said Thursday that the series titled "Hot Bench" has been sold in three-quarters of the country.

Judith Sheindlin, known for her long-running courtroom show "Judge Judy," said she got the idea for the new program after seeing three-judge panels on a visit to Ireland.

The "Hot Bench" trio includes a judge and two attorneys who will debate and decide the cases brought into their TV court.

A start date for the syndicated series was not announced.
