“Chuck” alum Ryan McPartlin is set as a series regular opposite Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba in NBC’s untitled “Bad Boys” spinoff pilot for Primary Wave Entertainment and Sony Pictures TV.
The series follows free-spirited former DEA agent Syd Burnett (Union) who gets a fresh start in her new job as an LAPD detective. She’s partnered with Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom who can’t help but look at Syd’s freedom with some grass-is-greener envy.
McPartlin will play Dr. Patrick McKenna, husband of Alba’s Nancy McKenna. Formerly an Army medic, he is now a successful ER trauma doctor in Beverly Hills. Ernie Hudson, Zach Gilford and Duane Martin co-star.
“The Blacklist” writers-producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier serve as showrunners while Jerry Bruckheimer and Doug Belgrad will executive produce.
