Reinhold Weege, Creator of 'Night Court,' Dies in La Jolla

The Emmy-nominated producer was 62.

Reinhold Weege, creator of the popular 1980s TV show “Night Court,” died of natural causes in his La Jolla home on Dec. 1. He was 62.

The Emmy-winning show featured a lively cast of characters led by a goofy young judge overseeing an unorthodox after-hours courtroom. Weege was nominated for three Emmys during “Night Court’s” run and one as co-producer of “Barney Miller,” another edgy sitcom based in New York.

Actor John Larroquette, whose career got a major boost as the lecherous prosecutor in “Night Court,” paid tribute to Weege on Twitter Friday: “In life there are those who impact us with such force everything changes. Reinhold Weege was that in mine. May he truly rest in peace.”
