Ernie Hudson joins Bad Boys spinoff TV series…

January 30th, 2018 by Marc Comments

With the news a few weeks ago that there was a Bad Boys spinoff TV series coming (here) which will follow the adventures not of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s leads but rather Gabrielle Union’s Special Agent Syd Burnett, we’ve been wondering when we’d get more news.

And today we got some cool news as FTN favourite Ernine Hudson, he of Ghostbusters, The Crow and Torchwood fame, is joint the cast too.

In the NBC pilot, written by The Blacklist writers-producers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier, the free-spirited former DEA agent Burnett has a fresh start in her new job as an LAPD detective. She’s partnered with Nancy McKenna, a working mom who can’t help but look at Syd’s freedom with some grass-is-greener envy. These two have totally different lifestyles and approaches, but they both are at the top of their fields in this action-packed, character-driven procedural.

Hudson will play Joseph Burnett, Union’s father.

You can watch our interview with the man himself a while back here where we talk Ghostbusters and much, much more

So there you have it… this is definitely happening as the Bad Boy universe expands on the small screen.

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….
