Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union, actresses and executive producers, arrived in Dubrovnik to be a part of this year’s New Europe Market (NEM), among many worldwide popular participants of this interesting event. Two ladies participated today in a panel about the series ‘L.A.’s Finest’ answering questions from the audience.
L.A.’s Finest is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television and 2.0 Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television. The drama follows Sydney ‘Syd’ Burnett (Union), who was last seen in Bad Boys II taking down a drug cartel in Miami. Having left her complicated past behind her, she is now an LAPD detective with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history. Burnett is forced to examine whether her unapologetic lifestyle might be masking a greater personal secret. Taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles while skirting the rules, Syd and McKenna become a force to be reckoned with, on the streets and in each other’s lives.
The series’ main cast also includes Zach Gilford, Duane Martin, Ryan McPartlin, Sophie Reynolds, and Ernie Hudson. Union and Alba are executive producers alongside Jerry Bruckheimer (Bad Boys), Jonathan Littman (CSI franchise), Kristie Anne Reed (Lucifer), Brandon Margolis (The Blacklist), Brandon Sonnier (The Blacklist), Pam Veasey (CSI:NY), Doug Belgrad (Peter Rabbit), Jeff Gaspin (To Tell the Truth), Jeff Morrone (Atomic Blonde) and Anton Cropper (Suits), who also directed the pilot.
