Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes To Star In New CBS Reality Series

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A new reality show will give us an inside look into the Brooklyn District Attorney's office.

The show will follow the office's 500 lawyers who juggle more than 1,000 cases a week under the direction of District Attorney Charles Hynes.

"These hard-charging prosecutors have larger-than-life personalities both inside the courtroom and out. They're eccentric and living right on the edge," according to a press release. "They're the people living the lives that Hollywood loves to write about. Their stories are raw and emotional."

The six-part series called "Brooklyn D.A." will air on CBS beginning May 21.

"No matter where you go everyone has heard about Brooklyn," Senior Executive Producer Susan Zirinsky said. "What makes this series so unique is getting into the lives and personalities of the individual DAs, led by Charles 'Joe' Hynes, who reflect the vibrancy and diversity of Brooklyn. We are allowed to watch their successes and their failures – it's immediate, compelling and often heartbreaking."

The documentary-style series is being produced by the team at "48 Hours."
