"The one-hour series 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," reads the official logline. 

"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 rest of the cast includes Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) as Ben Walker, Duane Martin (The New Edition Story) as Ben Baines, Ryan McPartlin (Chuck) as Patrick McKenna, Sophie Reynolds (Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything) as Isabel “Izzy” McKenna and Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters) as Joseph Vaughn.

LA's Finest started its life as a pilot for NBC last year, and while there was a lot of buzz surrounding the project, the Peacock network opted to cancel plans to make it a full-fledged series.

It was announced last June that Charter Communications had pressed on and ordered a 13-episode first season. 

“Charter has a strong passion for the project, and we could not be more excited,” ” said Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures TV when the series order was announced. 

“Immediately we knew this innovative new platform was absolutely the right home for L.A.’s Finest.”

Added Charter TV boss, Katherine Pope:

“Charter is excited to partner with top producers Sony, Bruckheimer and the rest of the incredible team behind and in front of the camera on our first Spectrum Original Content endeavor."
