Fans of Bad Boys will remember Union’s character, Syd Burnett, as the officer who cracked down on a drug cartel in Miami. After moving to Los Angeles to become a detective on the West Coast, Syd is partnered up with the working mother and fellow detective Nancy McKenna (played by Jessica Alba). The two become an odd couple of sorts as they fight crime on the streets of Los Angeles, hitting up all of the typical L.A. hot spots—LACMA’s Urban Light installation, Echo Park, the beach—and you can bet the pistol-wielding detectives are following none of the rules.
Friday Night Lights’s Zach Gilford, Duane Martin, Ryan McPartlin, and Sophie Reynolds also join the cast of the one-hour dramedy series, the first three episodes of which will reportedly debut at the same time on Spectrum OnDemand, before following a weekly release schedule. Both Union and Alba have also been given executive producer credits (with Jerry Bruckheimer, buddy-cop film producer extraordinaire, attached to EP the project as well).
The best friend chemistry between Alba and Union is palpable, and extends beyond the television series. The two often gleefully call each other “#werkwife” on Instagram, where they have also shared a slew of silly videos of their late-night shenanigans together on set, and have been spotted hanging out at a Los Angeles Lakers NBA game to support Union’s husband, the Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade.
At this point, all that’s left for these two to further solidify their “best friends goals” status is to cohost a podcast or celebrate the holidays together as a family.
