It starred Gemma Jones as Louisa Leyton/Trotter, the eponymous "Duchess" who works her way up from servant to renowned cook to proprietrix of the upper-class Bentinck Hotel in Duke Street, St. James's, in London.

Street Court is a nontraditional court show syndicated for one season by Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina-based Litton Entertainment and hosted by Michael Mazzariello, also referred to as Judge Mazz. Unlike other courtroom shows, Street Court travels across the United States and holds court at the scene of the dispute. Judge Mazz, a New York resident, is characterized by a strong Brooklyn accent and introduced the term "huckalero". Judge Mazz frequently uses it to describe alleged deception on the part of defendants, though he never explained on-air what huckalero means or where it originated. Judge Mazz ends every case with the quote, "That's my ruling, that's it." Judge Mazzariello's online biography cited a childhood and experience in Brooklyn as Assistant District Attorney, his founding of the nonprofit East New York Legal Services, and his role as Chief Prosecutor for the New York City Board of Education during the Giuliani administration. The City University of New York School of Law website cites him as an alum. Street Court was cleared in 89% of its television markets in the single season produced, and appeared to be a hit. The show appeared to be popular in larger markets and especially so in New York, where WPIX aired the show in mid-afternoon. Nevertheless, Litton choose not to renew Street Court after just one season and replaced the series in most of the markets with Judge Karen's Court, a new standard court room series presided over by Karen Mills-Francis, whose Judge Karen was canceled after one season.
