Jessica Alba is set to join Gabrielle Union in the upcoming NBC pilot for “Bad Boys” spin-off series dubbed an “action-packed, character-driven procedural.”
Union will reprise the role of Syd Burnett from “Bad Boys II”. Her character has left the DEA and now has a fresh start in her new job as an LAPD detective.
Alba plays Nancy McKenna, Burnett’s partner. McKenna is an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran who worked for the military police over there. She is now a detective raising two preteen step-kids with her husband.
Currently untitled, “The Blacklist” writers-producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier are writing with Jerry Bruckheimer and Doug Belgrad executive producing.
