"Dogs In The City" heads to CBS with Justin Silver.

Watch out, Carrie Bradshaw. There's a new group -- albeit less stylish -- of stars taking over Manhattan.

CBS has announced that New York City dog guru Justin Silver will host its new reality series "Dogs In The City" (premiering Wednesday, May 30 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS). Silver will act as a helping hand to dogs and their owners with various problems, from a dog having difficulty adjusting to its owners' divorce to a woman terrified of her boyfriend's golden retriever.

From training to owning his own pet care company, Silver has a long history with dogs. He also founded Funny or Fido, a nonprofit organization that raises money for homeless animals through a yearly stand-up comedy event.

“Dogs are at the center of the story here, but this is a show that reveals as much about human nature as man’s best friend,” executive producer Carol Mendelsohn (who executive produced by "CSI"), said in a statement.  “Dogs are often a lightning rod for their owners’ emotions and dysfunction at home.  Justin has an amazing gift to break down these complex issues with incredible heart, humor and, sometimes, much-needed candor.”

"Dogs In The City" premieres on Wednesday, May 30 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
