Spectrum has set a Monday, May 13th premiere date for “L.A.’s Finest,” the upcoming TV series spin-off of the “Bad Boys” franchise. The first three episodes will be available on that date with the remainder unveiled weekly on Mondays.
The project, Spectrum’s first original series, both stars and is executive produced by Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba. Jerry Bruckheimer also executive produces while Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier pen the series and serve as showrunners.
The thirteen-episode series follows Syd Burnett (Union), last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, who has left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective. Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom with an equally complex past, Syd is pushed to examine whether her unapologetic lifestyle might be masking a greater personal secret.
The series also stars Ernie Hudson as Joseph Burnett, Zack Gilford as Ben Walker, Sophie Reynolds as Izzy McKenna, Duane Martin as Ben Baines, and Ryan McPartlin as Patrick McKenna. The pilot episode boasted a budget of around $12 million, one of the most expensive pilots to be produced in the past year.
