Nancy Grace gears up for the debut of “Swift Justice”

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith It will be interesting to see how her supporters and – especially – her detractors respond to legal lightning rod Nancy Grace’s “Swift Justice” show that debuts Monday (9/13) in daytime syndication. The show trades in the standard faux courtroom for a glowing Lucite-appointed set that could be the envy of a starship captain, and utilizes cutting-edge techno whiz-bangery — like gigantic monitors to bring in witnesses, experts and litigants from afar via Skype-like “polycoms.”

But the biggest deal is Grace herself.

Referring to her “Nancy Grace” show on Headline News, she tells us she’s been asked, “’Why don’t you smile more? Why aren’t you more lighthearted?’ Well, talking about missing children and homicides, I don’t feel like turning on a big fake smile,” she says. “One of the things I like about ‘Swift’ is, there’s something for me to laugh about every day.”

Also, “This is a whole different arena for me. I’ve always dealt with criminal justice – homicides, kidnappings. These cases are civil,” notes the former prosecutor. They run the gamut of not-so-civil civil disagreements, from wedding reception ruiners to compulsive gamblers to a show biz flim-flammer out to get money from gullible seniors and teens — with Grace meting out swift justice as she sees fit.

If all goes as she hopes, she’ll continue to do both her HLN show and “Swift Justice.” That’s despite the fact that she and her husband of three years, investment banker David Linch (cq), have two-year-old twins Lucy and John at home. How does she manage?

“I’m on my way to the HLN show right now, soaking wet because I just bathed the twins,” she reports by phone with a laugh. She also says that when “Swift Justice” is filming, her parents come and stay at her home to help out.
