Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba play two tough-as-nails detectives on L.A.'s Finest, but the two women hold significant power behind the scenes too. They serve as executive producers and work hard to create a pioneering environment that empowers women, people of color, and even working moms. But they took one of the toughest hits imaginable in February, when a member of their team, executive producer/co-showrunner Brandon Sonnier, had his leg was amputated after a stunt car on set struck a shipping container and rolled onto Sonnier's leg as he was watching the scene on a monitor in the video village. His leg was pinned by the container, and his leg was amputated below the knee due to the injury.
