Actress, author and activist Gabrielle Union may be starring in a TV series spin-off based on her character in “Bad Boys II.”
According to DEADLINE, the untitled project is currently being pitched and has already got the attention of a few TV networks. The show will be led by the film’s original producer Jerry Bruckheimer along with Doug Belgrad.
Union played Special Agent Sydney “Syd” Burnett in “Bad Boys II” and is the sister of Detective Lieutenant Marcus Burnett, played by Martin Lawrence. She was also the love interest of his partner Detective Lieutenant Mike Lowrey, played by Will Smith.
BET recently announced that Union’s popular dramatic series “Being Mary Jane” was coming to a close after four seasons and will end in a two-hour film special, so this role and new project comes at just the right time. She also just released a new book titled We’re Going to Need More Wine, where she addresses color, fame and gender.
RC will keep you in the loop as this project continues to develop.
