Bad Boys TV series heads to pilot and will feature a, em, Bad Girl?

January 18th, 2018 by Marc Comments

While the Bad Boys movie is in development hell (here) we’re getting a TV series.

Sort of.

News has arrived that a Bad Boys spinoff focusing on Gabrielle Union’s Syd Burnett. Burnett is the sister of Martin Lawrence’s Bad Boy, Marcus, and is a former DEA agent. In the pilot, ordered by NBC, Burnett will move “from Miami to Los Angeles to work for the LAPD. There, she’s partnered with cop Nancy McKenna, a working mother who eyes Syd’s much more free life with some envy.

“Yet while they have very different lifestyles and approaches to work, can they click as an effective unit?”

The series will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer; at this moment we don’t know if Gabrielle Union all star and we’re hearing it’s doubtful we’ll see Lawrence or Will Smith either… though everyone loves a good cameo.

So no Bad Boys 3 but a Bad Girls series. Thoughts?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
