Melissa Rauch Didn't Intend To Actually Act In Night Court's Reboot

In an interview with Game Rant, Melissa Rauch revealed that her initial role in “Night Court” was going to be strictly behind the scenes. “I had just planned on producing it,” she said, adding that after starring in “The Big Bang Theory” from 2009 to 2019, she thought she would take a break from the multi-camera sitcom format. She continued, “And then, as we were developing it, I started thinking, ‘I’m really liking this part a lot,’ and when I read the final pilot script by our showrunner Dan Rubin, I just really fell in love with it, and I just thought he did such a wonderful job of striking that exact balance of humor and heart.”

Rauch also added that John Larroquette’s involvement in the series was a contributing factor to her joining him in front of the camera. “Realizing that another actress was gonna get a chance to do these beautifully written scenes with this legend of an actor,” Rauch said. “It felt like I was being a real idiot for not doing it.”

For Larroquette, the feeling was mutual. “When Melissa [Rauch] presented the idea to me, I immediately said, ‘No thank you,'” the veteran actor told Parade. “Then, one day, she told me that she wanted to be on-camera as well, so I decided to try and do it.”
