‘Beverly Hills Cop’ TV Series: First Photo of Eddie Murphy and Brandon T. Jackson Together!
We’re very curious to see if CBS upcoming ‘Beverly Hills Cop‘ TV pilot makes the cut for the fall season, particularly with the involvement of original franchise star Eddie Murphy, and most recently Judge Reinhold. Production of the Shawn Ryan-helmed, Barry Sonnenfeld-directed series has officially gotten under way, so are you ready to see Eddie Murphy and Brandon T. Jackson in action as Axel Foley and his son Aaron? Get a sneak peek of the ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ TV series inside!
Whether or not the ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ franchise really needed a reboot, Axel Foley is officially back on the case. ‘Last Resort‘ helmer and CBS ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ show-runner Shawn Ryan has begun tweeting from the set, giving us our first look at Axel Foley and his son Aaron. Unsurprisingly, they look quite a bit like Eddie Murphy and Brandon T. Jackson posing for a picture.
In addition to the recently-announced return of Judge Reinhold’s Billy Rosewood, the ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ TV pilot focuses 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 ‘The Office‘ star David Denman as the younger Foley’s partner, ‘Argo‘ star Sheila Vand as a fellow officer, Christine Lahti as the captain, and comedian Kevin Pollak playing the role of the department’s in-house lawyer.
