Jessica Alba Joins Gabrielle Union for ‘Bad Boys’ Spinoff3 months ago by Amber Le in TV News
What year are we in because it feels like we just took a trip back in time and rebooted all of our childhood memories from the slow comeback of R&B to spinoffs on movies. Jessica Alba will be returning to acting as Nancy McKenna and yes, with Gabrielle Union, who will resume her role as Syd Burnett for NBC’s Bad Boy spinoff.
“Nancy McKenna, Burnett’s partner. McKenna joined the Army out of high school and spent most of the 2000s in Iraq and Afghanistan. Women weren’t allowed in combat, so she joined the military police to get closer to the action. McKenna is now a detective raising two preteen step-kids with her husband.” Variety
Burnett is starting a new job as an LAPD detective after recently leaving the DEA. McKenna is the complete opposite of Burnett being that she is a mother while Burnett has her freedom but one thing they do have in common, they are both at the top of their fields which makes them stronger as a unit.
The franchise players are back as well. Jerry Bruckheimer and Doug Belgrad, who produced the previous series of Bad Boys, will executive produce the series alongside Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Read.
