GARY BUSEY: PET JUDGE

Out Now on Prime Video

New Half-Hour Courtroom Show

Each year across the country there are thousands of pet disputes. Those who want their cases tried by the best know there is only one man they can turn to, and he is thirsty for PET JUSTICE! That man- Gary Busey: Pet Judge.

The six-episode season is now available and entirely binge-able on Prime Video streaming, and for purchase on iTunes, Google Play, Xbox, and VUDU.

The series stars Judge Gary Busey as he presides over the fates of litigant pet owners. Each half-hour show presents two cases with a veritable menagerie of animals including monkeys, goats, birds, dogs, meerkats, turtles, robot raccoons, and more. Is Gary Busey a real judge?  Absolutely not. Does he know anything about pet law? Probably not. Can he look into your soul and suss out your spirit animal while delivering a verdict with a trademark Buseyism? You bet your sweet ass (the donkey kind).

The shows will feature plaintiffs and defendants locked in heated battle and mild confusion as they fight for the future of their pets. Judge Busey is aided in his job by Mike E. Winfield who shines as the helpful and encouraging voice-of-reason bailiff, Ian Abramson who caps each case with thought-provoking exit interviews, and Shadoe Stevens who lends dulcet gravitas to the entire venture.

You may think you are ready for this but we guarantee you are not. He puts the kangaroo in kangaroo court- it’s Gary Busey: Pet Judge!

Gary Busey has been preparing for this job his entire life. Sure, he starred in Point Break and Lethal Weapon, but did any of his blockbuster films require him to determine whether a cat should have a Viking funeral? Not until now and he is about to dish out some serious PET JUSTICE.

Diego Luna Returns as Félix Gallardo in Season 2 of Narcos: Mexico, premiering February 13, 2020

  • Narcos: Mexico is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. Eric Newman is Executive Producer and showrunner. José Padilha, Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard and Andi Baiz are Executive Producers.
  • Diego Luna plays Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (“Félix”), the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, one of the biggest narcos in the history of Mexico and the founder of the modern Mexican drug trade. Quiet but bold, inscrutable but sharp-minded, to all appearances he is a benevolent leader, loyal to his friends, associates, and employees…but his ambition comes before all else.
  • Scoot McNairy plays Walt Breslin, a hardened DEA agent whose methods aren’t always by the book. He is leading the team tasked with taking down those responsible for Kiki Camarena’s death.
  • Season 2 of Narcos: Mexico continues chronicling the missteps, ill-conceived agendas, and corruption on both sides of the border that have lead to a dangerous present in the failed war on drugs. It’s the mid-1980s, as Félix Gallardo’s super cartel splinters under its own dark weight and social and political shifts within Mexico prompt its desperate government’s most brazen corruption. Meanwhile, the American effort to exact revenge for Kiki Camerana’s execution leads them further away from any hope for justice. The cycle of violence rages on.
  • Executive Producer and Showrunner Eric Newman says of the story this season, “To understand the current level of drug violence in Mexico you have to understand how it all started, and truly grasp America’s integral role in it. The second season of Narcos: Mexico is a Pandora’s box, the contents of which we still struggle in vain, 30 years later, to try and contain.”

Several cast members join Narcos: Mexico in season 2 including:

  • Mayra Hermosillo (Falco) as Enedina Arellano Felix
  • Sosie Bacon (Here and Now) as Mimi Webb Miller

  • Noé Hernandez (We Are the Flesh) as Rafael Aguilar
  • Nat Faxon (Family Guy) as Ted Kaye
