Former onscreen partners will be reunited again, fight crime on TV
This is the closest thing to a new “Beverly Hills Cop”: CBS is working on a new series inspired from the movie franchise, which will pick up the story from where it left it. Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold will also be back.The two have agreed to reprise their roles for the pilot of the new series, The Wrap confirms.
“Reinhold will reprise the role of Rosewood – who has scored a big promotion from his old job. Murphy, who is serving as a producer, will also appear in the pilot, reprising his Axel Foley role,” the industry publication writes.
Murphy’s cameo is confirmed, but Reinhold’s not yet.
“The ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ pilot, which comes from ‘The Shield’ creator Shawn Ryan, is a continuation of the movie franchise, centered around Foley's police officer son (Brandon T. Jackson), who takes down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills,” The Wrap further notes.
