L.A.’s Finest Renewed for a Second Season

-

Spectrum has renewed its original series L.A.’s Finest, according to Deadline. The series stars Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba and is a spinoff of the Bad Boys franchise.

From the universe of the Jerry Bruckheimer/Michael Bay Bad Boys franchise, the one-hour series follows Syd Burnett (Gabrielle Union), last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, who has seemingly left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective. Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Jessica Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history, Syd is forced to confront how her unapologetic lifestyle may be masking a greater personal secret. Taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles while skirting the rules, and speed limits, Syd and Nancy become a force to be reckoned with – on the streets, and in each other’s lives.

The additional cast members include Ernie Hudson as Joseph Burnett, Zack Gilford and Duane Martin as Ben Walker and Ben Baines, and Ryan McPartlin as Patrick McKenna.

From Executive Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the Sony Pictures Television series is executive produced and written by Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier. Pam Veasey is executive producer and co-showrunner. The series is based upon the character Syd Burnett, originally created for Bad Boys II by Marianne and Cormac Wibberley and Ron Shelton.

L.A.’s Finest is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television, and 2.0 Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television. Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba executive produce alongside Brandon Margolis (The Blacklist), Brandon Sonnier (The Blacklist), Pam Veasey (CSI:NY), Doug Belgrad (Peter Rabbit), Jerry Bruckheimer (Bad Boys), Jonathan Littman (CSI franchise), KristieAnne Reed (Lucifer), Jeff Gaspin (To Tell the Truth) and Jeff Morrone (Atomic Blonde). Anton Cropper directed the pilot and is executive producer.
