Back To The Beginning: 'Being Mary Jane' Will End Series With 2-Hour Movie
Looks like there's life for Gabrielle Union after Being Mary Jane. NBC has ordered a pilot for an untitled drama series based on Union's Bad Boys 2 character, Syd Burnett.
Union will star as Syd Burnett, her character from “Bad Boys 2.” In the show, she has left the DEA and now 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. Union will also executive produce in addition to starring.
The project had received a pilot production commitment at the network in October.
No word on if Bad Boys' original cast members Martin Lawrence and Will Smith will make an appearance.
