Spectrum Originals Sets Premiere Date for New Drama 'L.A.'s Finest' Starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba

Charter Communications' premium content initiative Spectrum Originals has set a launch date today with the debut of its first original scripted drama series L.A.'s Finest starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba.

The first three episodes of the drama will be exclusively available to Spectrum video subscribers free On Demand (and without ads) on Monday, May 13. The remaining episodes of the 13-episode first season will be released every Monday until the finale.

From the universe of the Bad Boys film franchise, the drama follows Syd Burnett (Union), last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, who has seemingly left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective. Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history, Syd is forced to confront how her unapologetic lifestyle may be masking a greater personal secret. Taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles while skirting the rules, and speed limits, Syd and Nancy become a force to be reckoned with - on the streets, and in each other's lives.

The drama also stars Zack Gilford, Duane Martin, Ryan McPartlin, Sophie Reynolds and Ernie Hudson.

Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier created the drama, with Pam Veasey serving as showrunner for the first season. They executive produce with Union, Alba, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed, Doug Belgrad, Jeff Gaspin, Jeff Morrone and director Anton Cropper. Sony Pictures Television, Jerry Bruckheimer Television and 2.0 Entertainment produce.
