New TV Show "Swift Justice with Nancy Grace" and Tribune Media Services Announce National Legal Advice Column Penned by Nancy Grace
LOS ANGELES, CA – SEPTEMBER 8, 2010 – To coincide with the September 13th launch of CBS Television Distribution's (CTD) new syndicated court show, "Swift Justice With Nancy Grace," Tribune Media Services (TMS) will introduce a new, exclusive weekly column penned by the famous former prosecutor herself.
In a move that marks the first time TMS has created a weekly column in tandem with the premiere of a national television show, Swift Justice by Nancy Grace is a unique Q&A column tailored to address legal questions from print and online newspaper readers around the country, as well as "Swift Justice" viewers.
CBS Television Distribution selected global content-licensing agency TMS to market and distribute the weekly column for their collaborative creativity and relationships with more than 2,000 media clients. The new column rounds out a multimedia platform for the show that enables Nancy to offer her advice not only on-air and online, but also in print.
"Swift Justice by Nancy Grace is a perfect complement to our new show and will certainly fill a void by offering practical legal advice for everyday issues facing the public," said John Terenzio, executive producer. "This new advice column provided by TMS allows more people the unique opportunity to communicate directly with Nancy. We are thrilled to extend Nancy's brand of legal wisdom and her down-to-earth justice with readers and viewers across the country."
"We are pleased to join forces with CBS and Nancy Grace to extend her expressive voice to the writing of a weekly column for TMS," said Mary Elson, managing editor of TMS. "Nancy's popularity as a tell-it-like-it-is TV legal expert is a natural for an advice column that guides readers on everyday disputes and whether to pursue a case within the legal system."
Both viewers and readers will be able to submit legal questions to Nancy Grace via the show's website, www.swiftjustice.com.
