Caught in Providence, a court show featuring social media phenom Judge Frank Caprio, has been cleared to return for a second season after being renewed in nearly 90% of the country on Fox Television Stations and others.

“Judge Caprio’s undeniable brand of compassion and commonsense approach to justice have caught the attention of the daytime TV and social media audiences, making Caught In Providence worthy of a second season,” Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein commented. “His unique ability to entertain and enlighten viewers validates our initial belief in their thirst for a light-hearted television destination in today’s not-so-lighthearted climate.”

Caught In Providence, co-produced by Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury and Citylife Productions, offers a close-up view of what Judge Caprio, Chief Municipal Judge of Providence, RI, encounters in his courtroom. Caprio began to garner national attention when videos from the show were posted online and went viral, amassing nearly 2 billion views to date.

Caught in Providence is co-executive produced by Paula Abdul.
