NBC passes on Bad Boys spinoff L.A.'s Finest starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, but it's being shopped to other networks
"While not off the charts, L.A.’s Finest had garnered solid buzz and is a rare marquee drama title with two diverse female leads — something we don’t have on broadcast TV," according to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "It is not entirely clear whether NBC’s decision was based on creative or business reasons (NBC had been in negotiations with Sony TV on four projects — two pilots and two current series), but the answer is likely in some combination of the two."
