The “Bad Boys” movie franchise is getting a spinoff TV series that will follow the character played in the second film by Gabrielle Union, according to Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva.

“No one would comment but I hear the untitled project, which is currently being pitched to TV networks, already has garnered strong interest from multiple places and is expected to land a major commitment,” Andreeva wrote.

The script from writer-producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier will follow Union’s Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett character, introduced in the sequel “Bad Boys 2.” Syd 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).

Union just became available as BET announced that her popular series “Being Mary Jane” will end next year with a two-hour series finale movie.

The project is being set up from the “Bad Boys” movies’ producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Doug Belgrad via his 2.0 Entertainment and Primary Wave Entertainment. Sony Pictures TV Studios, whose movie sibling is behind the feature franchise, is the studio.

One thought on “‘Bad Boys 2’ Star Gabrielle Union To Lead TV Spinoff

  1. Gabrielle Union is a beautiful and classy lady, wish we had more like HER! She is right that white women in Hollywood should “pass the mic” to black women more often. It was smart for the new day rappers and hip-hop artists to go solo and independent of the greedy, money-grubbing music industry lawyers and executives. It’s time for performers in Hollywood and TV to do the same and also learn the value of a dollar. Look at how much money Bill O’Reilly of Fox TV forked out to that blonde Harvard Law woman. Bill, you could have had 1.3 million bl*w jobs for that $13 million!!!!!
