Ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, it is clear that cable news channels are changing things up on the air and behind the scenes.
For Fox News Channel, that means a new gig for Jeanine Pirro, the popular host of Justice with Judge Jeanine. According to The Wrap, she is also the host of a limited-run series, Castles USA, on the Fox Nation streaming service.
“Speaks of the gilded age”
As its title suggests, the five episodes include Pirro taking viewers on tours of the nation’s most famous castles.
The castles she explores over the course of the series include The Breakers in Rhode Island, Hammond Castle in Massachusetts, Fonthill Castle in Pennsylvania, and two in New York: Beardslee Castle and Oheka Castle.
Pirro recently discussed her latest on-air position during an interview with Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo.
“The Breakers, of course, is an Italianate mansion that’s on the water and speaks of the gilded age,” she said. “It is a magnificent property.”
Each of the castles featured in the show represents “the vision of very, you know, very philanthropic financiers of their time,” she said, emphasizing the grandeur of the Breakers in particular.
“You just walk into it and you’re in awe,” she said, adding that “all of these castles are still open and are available for the public to go in and view and look at what it was like in another time.”
“Issues other than politics”
As for the show itself, Pirro told viewers that she thinks “you’re going to love it,” reiterating that she “had a great time going through them.”
The former judge has become known as an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump throughout his first term in office, including in the aftermath of the president’s 2018 meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
At the time, she defended the reaction Trump had during a joint press conference, saying: “What was he supposed to do, take a gun out and shoot Putin? Putin said, ‘I didn’t meddle in your election,’ so the president should say, ‘Hang on, let me execute this guy?'”
While fans might be familiar with her background in law, it turns out she also majored in medieval history. She told The Wrap that she “often think[s] about issues other than politics,” explaining that she decided to host Castles USA “because there was a pandemic” and the subject matter was interesting to her.
