NBC developing Bad Boys TV spin-off starring Gabrielle Union

The Bad Boys TV spin-off series has found a home with a pilot production commitment from NBC.

Deadline reports that a "Bad Boys" spinoff centered around Union's character from "Bad Boys II", which was being shopped to networks last week, has landed at NBC. Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the "Bad Boys" films, will executive produce along with Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed, Jeff Gaspin, Jeff Morrone, Doug Belgrad.

In the "Bad Boys" universe, Burnett is the sister of Detective Lieutenant Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and was romantically involved with Marcus' partner, Detective Lieutenant Mike Lowrey (Will Smith). Complications arise when Syd's new partner, Nancy McKenna, learns that Syd may be hiding a personal secret.

Whether or not the Bad Boys film franchise will continue remains unclear.

It will be written by Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier (The Blacklist).

The role will mark Union's follow-up to her four-season run with BET's Being Mary Jane, which will wrap next year with a two-hour series finale movie.

Union will serve as executive producer on the series, should it get picked up, along with action-movie mogul Jerry Bruckheimer. He was the creative executive on the first movie, which established Lawrence and Smith as feature stars. Union and LeBron James are also set as executive producers on a project in development at ABC called "White Dave," which is based on the life of series creator David E. Talbert.
