LOS ANGELES (AP) — Judge Judy is going prime time.

CBS said Wednesday that TV judge Judith Sheindlin will be the focus of a one-hour special in May.

"Judge Judy Primetime" will chart the 71-year-old Sheindlin's transition from a New York Family Court judge to the star of her top-rated courtroom show.

Her syndicated daytime series, "Judge Judy," debuted in 1996.

The special also will include new cases and excerpts from past "60 Minutes" profiles on the no-nonsense Sheindlin, CBS said. "Judge Judy Primetime" is scheduled to air May 20 on CBS.
