Jessica Alba’s finesthour will wait…
Spectrum has decided to postpone Monday night’s Season 2 premiere of the 39-year-old half-Mexican American actress’ action drama L.A.’s Finest amid the ongoing George Floyd protests against police brutality and racism.
Tonight’s premiere has been pushed to a later date TBD in 2020.
The move follows those by AMC to pull this past weekend’s episodes of Live PD, and Paramount Network’s decision to shelve its police series Cops, amid the ongoing protests.
The move follows days worldwide protests and calls for action against police in the wake of the deaths of Floyd and others at the hands of officers.
L.A.’s Finest, which hails from creators Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier, Sony Pictures Television, Jerry Bruckheimer Television and 2.0 Entertainment, stars Gabrielle Union and Alba.
Season one of the series followed Syd Burnett (Union), who was last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel and left her complicated past to become an LAPD detective. Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history, Syd was forced to confront how her unapologetic lifestyle was masking a greater personal secret. Taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles while skirting the rules, and speed limits, Syd and Nancy became a force to be reckoned with – on the streets, and in each other’s lives.
