'Beverly Hills Cop' TV Series Lands at CBS


CBS has emerged as the victor following a "very competitive" bidding war over Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan's small-screen Beverly Hills Cop reboot, guaranteeing a pilot production to the Sony TV-produced project.

Murphy will reprise his role of wise-cracking Detroit cop Axel Foley in the pilot and may guest star in future episodes if the pilot gets picked up into a series.

The hour-long procedural centers on Axel Foley's son Aaron, a blue collar cop who serves the city of Beverly Hills while trying to get out from under his dad's reputation. Deadline adds that the show will focus on the clash between Aaron's working-class roots and his wealthy work environment to provide a fish-out-of-water setup.

Vulture adds that the show will be "an hourlong crime procedural with strong comedic elements," with the feel of a "buddy cop show."

Will you be tuning in to check out the pilot when the show hits the small screen next year?
