We recently shared that NBC decided to not move forward with ‘LA’s Finest’, which serves as a spin-off series of the Bad Boys franchise. The project stars actresses Gabriel Union and Jessica Alba as detectives. Well, according to reports, Union and Alba’s series could be picked up by ‘Charter Communications’ if all goes well. It is noted that Charter works with AMC Networks and Viacom.
Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba’s Bad Boys television spinoff is very much still in contention. According to a new report from Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, Sony Pictures TV is in talks with Charter Communications for the cable giant to take on the action drama L.A.’s Finest. Andreeva says that sources stress the talks are still very preliminary and may not result in a deal. Charter Communications, which produced the cable product Spectrum, drummed up original content deals with AMC Networks and Viacom, and also hired a seasoned TV exec, Katherine Pope, to head up original content. It would be Charter’s first move, and a big one at that, into this space.
