‘Bad Boys’ Spin-Off TV Series
Bad Boys 3 may be sitting on ice, but there is a spin-off TV series in the works with Gabrielle Union set as the leading lady.
According to Deadline, the yet-to-be-titled series, which is being shopped to networks, will center around Gabrielle’s character in Bad Boys II.
The untitled Bad Boys spinoff is being written by The Blacklist writers-producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier. Union’s Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett, introduced in the sequel Bad Boys II, is the sister of Detective Lieutenant Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) who was romantically involved with Marcus’ partner, Detective Lieutenant Mike Lowrey (Will Smith).
She is an undercover operative with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
I hear the idea for a Bad Boys offshoot centered around Union’s character came from Primary Wave Entertainment, which manages the actress, in the company’s first broadcast development season since it brought in former NBC Universal TV Entertainment chairman Jeff Gaspin as President.
He executive produces the project alongside Union’s manager Jeff Morrone.
I hope this project sees the light of day.
