Robert Rinder has joined Channel 4 for a one-off special.
“We feel it’s about time to reinvent studio entertainment for the modern age. This show, a non-TX pilot, needs to cover all levels of culture, all categories of politics and all the colours of the rainbow. And we’ve found the very man to do it.” – Graham Stuart, Managing Director of So Television
Best known as Judge Rinder on ITV, Robert – or as Channel 4 call him ‘Rob’ – is to front the hour long programme which, if popular, may be extended to a series.
RinderLand will see the personality, who has also starred on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing, take the helm of a topical studio entertainment show in his own inimitable style. With studio items, VT sketches, clever comedy and celebrity guests drawn from Rinder’s legendary little black book – he won’t shy away from any subject and tackle some taboos head on.
Robert Rinder’s take on the world encompasses his range of experiences – be it in the courtroom, in the corridors of power, or most recently on the dancefloor.
RinderLand hasn’t been scheduled to air on Channel 4, however if deemed a success it’s likely the broadcaster will screen the pilot or a re-made version of said show. Robert became a telly personality after launching a his courtroom ruling series Judge Rider on ITV Daytime in 2014. Proving popular with audiences he also hosts ITV’s Judge Rinders Crime Stories.
