Nancy Grace will be leaving the daytime syndicated show Swift Justice after one season. Las Vegas Judge Jackie Glass will take her place on the show, whose production will be moved from Atlanta, where Grace is based, to Los Angeles. “Leaving such a successful show was a tough decision, but, with the increased requirements of the production’s relocation to Los Angeles, it became challenging to balance my most important job — mother to John David and Lucy back home,” Grace said in a statement. CBS TV Distribution’s Swift Justice launched as the top-rated new first-run syndicated series this season and earned an Emmy nomination for best Legal/Courtroom Program. Glass is best known as the judge who presided over the case that sent O.J. Simpson to jail for his role in an armed robbery at a Las Vegas hotel in 2008.
