Duane Martin Cast In Gabrielle Union’s ‘Bad Boys’ Spinoff Series
The series is from the Bad Boys movies’ producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Doug Belgrad, Primary Wave Entertainment and Sony Pictures TV and centers on the Special Agent Syd Burnett character played by Union in 2003’s Bad Boys II.
In the pilot, Burnett (Union) 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.
Martin plays the smart and competitive LAPD homicide detective Ben Baines, who’s partnered with Ben Walker (Gilford), and they’re both referred to as “the Bens.” Ernie Hudson will play Union’s father.
Martin most recently co-starred in BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood and The New Edition Story miniseries.
