Cristina Perez Cristina’s Court
Cristina’s Court, a syndicated American arbitration-based reality court show that premiered in 2006, was her first show. It was shot at KRIV, a FOX-owned and operated television station in Houston. With Maria Lopez (Judge Maria Lopez), Alex Ferrer (Judge Alex), and Marilyn Milian (The People’s Court), Perez became one of four Hispanic judges who presided over an English-language American TV judge show. Peter Brennan executive produced the show, which was directed by Arthur Bergel. Perez is the first Hispanic judge to make the transition from Spanish to English television. Her ancestors are Colombian, not Mexican or Cuban, as several of her viewers had assumed.
The 3-season court show held the record for the most Daytime Emmy wins for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program for 9 years. Cristina’s Court’s 9 years of Emmy victories is the longest period for having the most wins in the category, even if it no longer holds the record. The show received its first and second Daytime Emmy Awards for “Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program” in the show’s second and third seasons, respectively, at the 34th and 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
Despite the show being canceled by this point, it earned another “Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program Award” at the 36th Annual Daytime Emmys on June 25, 2010. This was due to the fact that the Emmy Awards for the previous television season were being presented. After three seasons, the show was discontinued in February 2009. Original episodes aired till September 2009, when the show was canceled. Perez took part in a weekly radio feature called “Sex In the News” on Playboy Radio, a Sirius satellite radio station. Cristina was named one of the most trustworthy and prominent syndicated hosts on television by the Syndicated Network Television Association, coming in second behind Oprah Winfrey among adults 18 to 34 years old.
