gabrielle union getty Gabrielle Union tapped for 'Army Wives' spin offThe as-of-yet unnamed “Army Wives” spin-off that Lifetime has been working on for almost a year is moving ahead — with Gabrielle Union.

According to Deadline, the spin-off will focus on “Army Wives” character Pamela Moran (Brigid Brannagh), a woman recently divorced from her Delta Force soldier husband who returns to her career as a police officer. Moran will become a detective with the Atlanta PD and her new partner will be Detective Gina Holt of the Major Crimes division. Gabrielle Union has been tapped to play Holt.

“Army Wives” will wrap its fourth season on Sunday, June 20 but the spin-off has been in the works for awhile now. Last September, Lifetime asked their viewers and readers to vote on which character should get her own spin-off. Pamela Moran was one of the most popular choices.

What do you think, “Army Wives” fans? Will you tune in to this female cop show?
