Gabrielle Union & Jessica Alba Are “L.A.’s Finest” (Series Trailer)

Interesting that this will be on Charter, a cable platform. Word on the Interwebs is that the pilot for this “Bad Boys” spinoff-for-TV series was passed on by NBC (which is owned by Comcast, a huge Charter competitor) first. Let’s see if ‘little bank’ can take from ‘big bank’ on this occasion.

Looks like a dope trailer, setting up ‘Syd’ (Gabrielle Union reprising her role as Martin Lawrence’s character’s sister from “Bad Boys II”) as the centerpiece for some good storytelling on the small screen.

From the universe of the Jerry Bruckheimer/Michael Bay “Bad Boys” franchise, “L.A.’s Finest” follows Syd Burnett (Gabrielle 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 (Jessica 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 first three installments in the 13-episode series will be exclusively available to Spectrum video subscribers free On Demand (and without ads) on May 13, after which new episodes will release every Monday until the finale.

Debuting in 2019, Spectrum Originals is a premier destination for premium original series available exclusively to Spectrum video subscribers on-demand and ad-free. This free service will launch with the Sony and Bruckheimer-produced drama “L.A.’s Finest,” starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba. An initiative of Charter Communications, Spectrum Originals is the latest expansion of Charter’s market-leading video offerings, which include regional sports networks and its award-winning Spectrum News services.

Protesters ‘Makes Some Noise’ For Social Justice At “The Public” Library (Trailer)

Look up ‘moral dilemma’ in the dictionary. It’d probably reference something like this movie’s plotline in the definition. Hmmm… “The Public” library is a good place to find a good dictionary… and shelter from deadly cold winter weather. Watch the trailer above.

In The Public, an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library where the action of the film takes place. The story revolves around the library patrons, many of whom are homeless, mentally ill and marginalized, as well as an exhausted and overwhelmed staff of librarians who often build emotional connections and a sense of obligation to care for those regular patrons. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, the patrons turn the building into a homeless shelter for the night by staging an “Occupy” sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience comes to a standoff with police and a rush-to-judgment media constantly speculating about what’s really happening. This David versus Goliath story tackles some of our nation’s most challenging issues, homelessness and mental illness and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.

Gabrielle Union Speaks On Sexual Freedom, Her Book, And Husband Dwyane Wade Reuniting With Lebron James (Video)

Daaaamn, Gab! Started flipping your “fun switch” at 5? Trolling for Black men in the Yay Area in later years? Telling the young ladies to demand that good ‘gina gobbling AND azz-eating from these men out here (because reciprocity)? You wild out here like that?!

Okay, women’s liberation for real. FREEDOM… sexual and otherwise! Well, go ‘head Being Mary Jane on ’em then *wink*

Sleepless (Trailer)

Tell you what… this movie’s promo is gonna put Jamie Foxx front and center, but consider that this is another chance for T.I. to get his weight up on the big screen. Great trailer promising incredible action and intrigue. Plus, bank on some twists. Hope it does as well as it looks so far.

And messing with a man’s son… a supercop known to pop a glock… NOT a good idea… unless you are in the movie audience watching it!

(Hey, Gabrille Union. We see you in there.)
