Randy Douthit began his film production and directing career in 1970 as a producer for CNN’s King Broadcasting. He held this position for eight years up until 1978, when he left and became the executive producer for Cable News Network. Between 1991 and 1993, he was the executive producer for Quincy Jones Enterprises. Between 1993 and 1994, he worked as an executive producer for Home Box Office and New World Entertainment. Even though Randall has produced a wide range of shows for various channels, his breakthrough has been attributed to his role as a producer for the hit show Judge Judy and its spinoff Judy Justice.
Judge Judy has been gracing CBS screens for the past 25 years, and its return has been received positively by viewers and critics alike. According to Randall, the overall format used to produce Judy Justice won’t be far different from the concept used to produce Judge Judy. As a fact, Judge Judy will still rely on the role played by Sheindli as she presides over different court cases. However, the new show will come with new changes, which include the disputation of small criminal matters and subsequent claims. Litigants in these cases will be awarded $10,000. A new team will also offer Sheindlin on-screen support.
Randy Douthit has been nominated for numerous awards and has won some of these awards. As a fact, Randall has been nominated for a record 24 times and won two awards. The two awards he has won include The Daytime Emmy award, which he won in 2013 for producing Judge Judy, and the ACE award he won in 1988 for producing Larry King Live.
