Gabrielle Union is the author of We’re Going to Need More Wine, a New York Times bestseller, and Welcome to the Party kids book, her first book for children. She’s also an actress, activist, producer, and New York and Company fashion designer. She currently stars and produces the Spectrum Original “L.A.’s Finest” alongside Jessica Alba. Union is an executive producer through her production shingle “I’ll Have Another.” Season two of the show will be out on Spectrum on June 8th. Union played the titular character in the critically acclaimed BET drama “Being Mary Jane” and starred in various movies such as THINK LIKE A MAN; THINK LIKE A MAN TOO; and BRING IT ON. Union’s passion for acting is rivaled by her championing of causes near and dear to her heart such as breast health, and combating sexual violence.
