Press: Bad Boys TV spinoff L.A.’s Finest finally gets picked up

Press: Bad Boys TV spinoff L.A.’s Finest finally gets picked up

After plenty of back and forth, the Bad Boys television spinoff is a go.

As announced by Deadline, Charter Communications has officially picked up L.A.’s Finest as its first scripted series. The company, the second-largest cable operator in the U.S. based on subscriber count, handed the project a 13-episode, straight-to-series order.

L.A.’s Finest stars Gabrielle Union as Special Agent Syd Burnett, the character she first played the 2003 film Bad Boys II, and Jessica Alba as Nancy McKenna, a hard-working mother and detective at the Los Angeles Police Department. After Syd packs up her life and heads for the state whose women Katy Perry once wrote a whole song about, she’s partnered up with Nancy — her polar opposite. The women lead very different lives and approach their work from their own unique angles, but together, they capitalize on their shared strengths to become — you guessed it — L.A.’s finest.

Charter Communications will be the stateside home of L.A.’s Finest, with the series living at Bell Media in Canada. Like Charter just did, the Toronto-based digital media and broadcasting company ordered 13 episodes of the project in a straight-to-series deal earlier this year.

News of Charter picking up L.A.’s Finest comes after months of build up, casting announcements, title reveals, and the disappointing break that NBC passed on the pilot. Once word got out that the network was no longer interested in the project, Sony Television began shopping it internationally. Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures TV, is confident that Charter is the perfect place for L.A.’s Finest.

“Charter has a strong passion for the project, and we could not be more excited,” Frost said in a statement. “Immediately we knew this innovative new platform was absolutely the right home for L.A.’s Finest.”

In addition to Union and Alba, the series also stars Ernie Hudson as Joseph Burnett, Zack Gilford as Ben Walker, Duane Martin as Ben Baines, Zach McGowan as Ray Sherman, and Ryan McPartlin as Patrick McKenna. L.A.’s Finest has former CSI: NY showrunner Pam Veasey attached as co-showrunner alongside writers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier.

Billed as an “action-packed, character-driven procedural,” L.A.’s Finest will premiere on Charter Communication’s Spectrum channel sometime in 2019.

Press: Zach McGowan Joins NBC’s ‘Bad Boys’ Spinoff

The ‘100’ and ‘Shameless’ star will play the main villain opposite Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba in the untitled drama pilot.

NBC’s untitled Bad Boys spinoff has found its main villain.

Zach McGowan, most recently known for his role as Ice Nation King Roan in CW’s post-apocalyptic drama The 100, is set to star opposite Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba in the NBC drama pilot. McGowan, who has starred in shows including Agents of Shield, Black Sails and Shameless, will play a slick-suited hustler who runs a nightclub.

McGowan’s character — Ray Sherman — has a violent encounter with Union’s LAPD homicide detective Syd Burnett (Union, reprising her role from Bad Boys II), who is looking for a criminal he is apparently in business with.

The project revolves around the free-spirited former DEA agent Syd getting a fresh start in her new job. She is partnered with Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom who can’t help but look at Syd’s freedom with some grass-is-greener envy. Both are at the top of their fields in the action-packed, character-driven procedural.

The untitled drama was written by Brandon Sonnier and Brandon Margolis (The Blacklist). The project hails from Sony Pictures Television, Jerry Bruckheimer Television, Primary Wave and 2.0 Entertainment. (Sony’s Columbia produced the original Bad Boys films alongside Bruckheimer.)

Alongside Bad Boys, which is currently shooting, McGowan has recently wrapped period drama Damnation for USA Network (Netflix will stream it internationally). On the feature film side, he has both Death Race: Beyond Anarchy and Universal’s Scorpion King: Book of Souls, the latter in which he plays the title role, coming up.

McGowan is represented by ICM Partners and Primary Wave Entertainment.
