“Brooklyn DA” Is Coming to Prime Time


The men and women of the Kings County court system are hitting prime-time TV. Media Bistro reported that CBS will run a six-part documentary series, titled “Brooklyn DA,” that follows the staff of the Kings County District Attorney’s Office inside the courtroom and out. The “48 Hours” team will produce the series. Here’s what Senior Executive Producer Susan Zirinsky said about the show in a press release: “No matter where you go, everyone has heard about Brooklyn. What makes this series so unique is getting into the lives and personalities of the individual D.A.s, 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 series begins on Tuesday, May 21 at 10 pm. Definitely interesting viewing for anyone who’s spent any time there serving jury duty!
