Is it possible that the world has grown tired of watching surgically-altered Bridezillas critique each others' weddings before capping off the day with a therapeutic meal of dryer sheets, dying and spending the eternal afterlife haunting washed-up celebrities? CBS has the dry antidote that jaded viewers have been waiting for: "Brooklyn D.A.," featuring, predictably, Brooklyn D.A. Charles Hynes.

The six-part series, set to launch May 21, seems to be taking a somewhat loftier approach to a genre of television almost universally regarded as the weird, backwoods, inbred cousin of cerebral hits like Mad Men and House of Cards. Rather than latching on to viewer's fascination with midgets/ghosts/ghost midgets breeding carnivorous alpacas (forthcoming!), the show will, according a press release acquired by the Daily News, focus on the lives of "hard-charging prosecutors" and their "larger-than-life personalities both inside the courtroom and out." Tune in next week, when a no-nonsense Brooklyn prosecutor drunkenly chokes an EMT who's trying to treat to him for alcohol poisoning! GREAT television.

Show star and Real Life Prosecutor Charles Hynes does have some screen-worthy drama, as he's up for sixth term reelection against attorney Kenneth P. Thompson, who represented the hotel maid who accused former IMF director Dominique Strauss-Kahn of attempted sexual assault.

The biggest challenge the show will face is finding its audience: Will "Brooklyn DA" attempt to woo the average slack-jawed Honey Boo Boo enthusiast with its Law and Order-worthy crime angles? Or will it seek to elevate reality TV to the heights attained by its uptown HBO relatives? One thing the show probably won't feature: Hynes' peculiar approach to handling sexual abuse claims in the ultra-Orthodox community. That would just be too real.
