NBC has given the official order for a pilot for a TV series spin-off of the “Bad Boys” franchise starring Gabrielle Union’s Syd Burnett character from the second film.
Currently untitled, Union’s character has left the DEA and now has a fresh start in her new job as an LAPD detective. There she’s partnered with Nancy McKenna, a working mom who can’t help but look at Syd’s freedom with envy.
They have totally different lifestyles and approaches, but they both are at the top of their fields. Union will also executive produce in addition to starring. Brandon Sonnier and Brandon Margolis (“The Blacklist”) will pen and executive produce. Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed, Jeff Gaspin, Jeff Morrone, and Doug Belgrad will also executive produce.
