Certainly one of CBS’ highest profile pilots to watch this season, the ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ TV series has continued staffing up. Latest to join the cast, following last week’s acquisition of ‘Argo’ star Sheila Vand, is ‘Hawaii Five-0′ player Christine Lahti, taking the Beverly Hills Police Department’s captain role among the new cast.
Produced by Eddie Murphy and ‘Last Resort’ showrunner Shawn Ryan, the forthcoming ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ series follows Axel Foley’s son Aaron Foley (Brandon T. Jackson) working to “take down the criminal elements of the rich and famous, while simultaneously trying to escape the shadow of his larger than life father.” Rounding out the cast thus far is comedian Kevin Pollak, playing the role of the department’s in-house lawyer.
