The last time superstar Jessica Alba graced our television screens was in the short lived Dark Angel series on Fox.
Now the gorgeous actress is set to team up with Gabrielle Union for The Bad Boys spin-off series coming to NBC. Alba also will serve as an executive producer on the project, from Bad Boys movies’ producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Doug Belgrad, Primary Wave Entertainment and Sony Pictures TV. It centers on the Special Agent Syd Burnett character played by Union in 2003’s Bad Boys II.
In the NBC pilot, written by Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier and directed by Anton Cropper, the free-spirited former DEA agent Burnett has 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. These two have totally different lifestyles and approaches, but they both are at the top of their fields in this action-packed, character-driven procedural.
