Gabrielle Union is heading to NBC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered a Bad Boys spin-off pilot.
Union played Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett in the 2003 film Bad Boys II, a sequel to the popular 1995 action movie starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.
From Blacklist writer Brandon Sonnier and Brandon Margolis, the Bad Boys spin-off will follow Union’s character, who is “now an LAPD detective and can pursue all the pleasures Los Angeles has to offer and leave her past behind. But things will get complicated when her new partner, Nancy McKenna, learns that Syd’s unapologetic lifestyle may be masking a greater personal secret.”
Sony Pictures TV Studios, Primary Wave Entertainment, Jerry Bruckheimer Television, and 2.0 Entertainment are producing the project.
