Laroquette, who won four best supporting actor in a comedy series Emmys for Night Court, is set to reprise his 1984-1992 NBC comedy role as prosecutor Dan Fielding. The Big Bang Theory alum Melissa Rauch is executive producing the revival that would focus on Fielding and the daughter of the late Harry Anderson's Judge Harry T. Stone. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt producer Dan Rubin is writing the sequel to the original series, created by Reinhold Weege. According to Deadline, "the multicamera Night Court centers on the unapologetic optimist judge Abby Stone, daughter of the late Harry Stone, who follows in her father’s footsteps as she presides over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court and tries to bring order to its crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding (Larroquette)." The original Night Court earned three Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy nominations during its nine-season run.
