A serious accident on the set of L.A.’s Finest, Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba’s upcoming drama, has temporarily shut down production, Deadline reports.
According to the industry publication, multiple people were injured on Thursday when a stunt car crashed into the video village where producers were watching the show. While the production has yet to release more details about the accident, an officer with the Los Angeles Port Police confirmed the incident.
“I can confirm there was an accident,” Lt. Philip Heem said, noting the accident took place Thursday afternoon at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro.
“We had two injuries,” Heem added, “one being worse than the other.”
The injured parties, who were later identified as co-showrunners Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier, were transported to two area hospitals. Margolis was released, while Sonnier remains hospitalized, Deadline reports. Production on the upcoming Spectrum series was scheduled to wrap up this weekend, but the accident has pushed that back.
Executive produced by Union and Alba, L.A.’s Finest is a spin-off the Bad Boys film franchise. In the show, Union reprises her role as Sydney Burnett, a hard-charging special agent. After leaving her life in Miami behind, Burnett relocates to Los Angeles where she joins the LAPD and teams up with Nancy McKenna (Alba). Though the pair are very different, they work together to take down some of the city’s most dangerous criminals.
L.A.’s Finest will premiere on May 13 on Spectrum Originals.
