The pilot focuses on the free-spirited former DEA Agent Syd Burnett (Gabrielle Union) making a fresh start in her new job as an LAPD Detective. She’s partnered with Nancy McKenna (Jessica Alba), a working mother who can’t help but look at Syd’s freeform with some grass-is-greener envy. These two have totally different lifestyles and approaches, but they’re both at the top of their fields in this action-packed, character-driven procedural.
The character of Syd Burnett was introduced to audiences in the 2003 feature Bad Boys II, working undercover in Miami, trying to take down a drug cartel. Syd is the sister of Detective Lieutenant Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and was also romantically involved with his partner, Detective Lieutenant Mike Lowrey (Will Smith).
