12-15 - Judge Alex Ferrer, Kelli Ellis, Dr. Elmo

Judge Alex Ferrer -  "Judge Alex"
JUDGE ALEX is a nationally syndicated, court show premiering September 12, 2005. A former police officer, trial attorney and criminal court judge, it’s no surprise that Judge Alex Ferrer has seen it all! With his eye sharply focused on uncovering the truth, JUDGE ALEX will preside over this emotional, daily, half-hour, court room drama with rulings that convey law and order.  From consumer complaints, landlord disputes and co-worker conflicts, to confrontations between family and friends, JUDGE ALEX will provide his litigants with fair, firm and fast justice. With more than 20 years of experience, Judge Alex Ferrer is respected by his peers, extremely knowledgeable of the law, and well-equipped to handle highly charged cases in a fair and insightful manner. JUDGE ALEX will take control of his court room by delivering a straight forward, decisive and tough brand of justice. And, in accordance with the likes of Judge Judy and Judge Lynn Toler, JUDGE ALEX will take advantage of the humor found in his cases.  From patrolling the streets, to controlling the courtroom, JUDGE ALEX is bringing his real-life brand of law and order to television.

Kelli Ellis - Host, TLC's Clean Sweep
As the only child of a superior court judge, Kelli Ellis learned at a young age the importance of diplomacy and balance — in life as well as in a room! She earned her bachelor's degree in communications and marketing and following in her father's footsteps, she applied for law school. After long nights in the law library Kelli decided to leave the courtroom behind and pursue her true love of design, enrolling in the Interior Design Institute in Newport Beach. From the beaches of California to the mountains of Montana, Kelli's clients have kept her very busy on a repeat and referral basis for the past five years. While expanding Kelli Ellis Interiors Inc., she has been occupied with her greatest accomplishments, her two beautiful daughters, who reside with her in Orange County, Calif

Dr. Elmo - "Grandma Got Runover by Reindeer"
Elmo Shropshire - a.k.a DR. ELMO - is best-known for his recording of "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer," the Christmas classic which has sold more than 10 million copies since it was first broadcast by a San Francisco radio station in 1979. Consistently the most requested holiday song of the past two decades, "Grandma" has secured its place in American pop culture and made Dr. Elmo the king of comedy carols. Each December, radio stations throughout the country call Dr. Elmo for his Christmas commentary and live on-air renditions of "that Grandma song." With the quirky sing-a-long as centerpiece, a radio visit from Dr. Elmo has become part of the nation's holiday tradition.  As a whole new generation sings along, Dr. Elmo continues to spread good cheer in his chats with disc jockeys and their listeners all across America. Along the way, he has released two CDs of seasonal satire, appeared on many television programs and been the subject of numerous magazine and newspaper articles. That this Lexington, Kentucky, native would ride a reindeer to success is a slightly different scenario than the namesake of famed jockey and horse trainer Elmo Shropshire might have envisioned. After working alongside his father in the Bluegrass State and at racetracks in Florida, the future Dr. Elmo earned his degree in veterinary medicine and tended to the thoroughbreds of New York's Aqueduct and Belmont Park racetracks. A move to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he established his own animal hospital, was his proverbial changing of the horses in the middle of the stream. He became a competitive runner. His bluegrass band performed in venues throughout Northern California. And, in 1979, he came upon a little song written by his friend Randy Brooks that everyone but Elmo agreed was one of the weirdest Christmas songs they had ever heard.
