NBC’s Bad Boy spinoff starring Gabrielle Union officially has a title – L.A.’s Finest.

Jessica Alba will star in the spinoff alongside Union, and the series follows the Special Agent Syd Burnett character played by Union in 2003’s Bad Boys II movie as she moves to Los Angeles and joins the LAPD.  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.

The TV show represents a female take on the Bad Boys movies which focused on two partnered Miami Police detectives, played by Martin Lawrence and Will Smith — with two female LAPD detective partners, played by Union and Alba, at the center.

Union is currently starring in the BET series Being Mary Jane. The series will be wrapping next year after airing on the network for four season with a two-hour movie on the network later this year. She has starred in films such as Birth of a Nation and Almost Christmas. She also co-starred alongside Jamie Foxx in Sleepless, and will soon serve as exec producer on an upcoming ABC single-camera comedy White Dave from filmmaker David E. Talbert (First Sunday, Almost Christmas).
