Well, this is certainly not an article we expected to be writing. It appears among the dozens of cancellations and renewals emerging today from NBC, CBS and ABC, one very promising pilot has slipped through the cracks. CBS will not move forward with the Eddie Murphy-produced 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV series, but will another network pick up their loss?
Beverly Hills Cop
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!
Admittedly, we'd have likely tuned in for CBS' upcoming Shawn Ryan-helmed 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV series regardless of who from the film franchise cast put in an appearance, but we're glad to see Eddie Murphy won't be shoving bananas into tailpipes all by his lonesome. At long last, it seems Judge Reinhold has signed on to reprise his role as Billy Rosewood for the upcoming pilot, but have the years been as good to Billy as they have to Axel Foley? And where does young Aaron fit in?
Now that the pilot order has been made official, CBS' upcoming Eddie Murphy-produced 'Beverly Hills Cop' sequel TV series has been busy, last week casting 'Argo' star Sheila Vand for a regular role on the series.

With the talent of 'The Shield' creator Shawn Ryan at the helm, and the promise of a recurring guest role for original film series star Eddie Murphy, we'd be hard pressed to think that CBS' forthcoming 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV series will have a difficult time making it past the pilot stage. And while CBS won't announce a decision for some time, the network has continued casting the pilot with 'Argo' star Sheila Vand as the female lead, and opposing detective for Brandon T. Jackson's Aaron Foley. Get the latest on the 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV series inside!
Officially ordered to pilot, CBS' forthcoming Eddie Murphy-produced 'Beverly Hills Cop' sequel TV series has been on a bit of a roll of late, yesterday casting comedian Kevin Pollak for a recurring role on the series. With Brandon T. Jackson in the lead and Eddie Murphy set to make occasional appearances, 'Beverly Hills Cop' has officially cast its own Judge Reinhold figure with former 'The Office' player David Denman. But, will Judge himself return, lest he be judged?
It may be a while yet before we hear or see anything concrete from CBS' forthcoming 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV series, a sequel series set in the same universe as Eddie Murphy's infamous Axel Foley and focusing on the character's son Aaron Foley. Still, with Brandon T. Jackson confirmed as the new lead, and Eddie Murphy likely to make several appearances if picked up to series, CBS' 'Beverly Hills Cop' has added yet another famous comedic face to its ranks.

A few months back we were intrigued to learn that CBS had decided to option a sequel/reboot TV series out of Eddie Murphy's iconic comedy vehicle 'Beverly Hills Cop,' focusing on main character Axel Foley's son. Comedic star Brandon T. Jackson has officilaly been confirmed to take the lead role of Aaron Foley, but the question remains if Eddie Murphy himself would ever appear in the series.

Axel Foley, meet Alpa Chino. A little over a month ago we heard that CBS was looking to develop a new TV series based on the classic 'Beverly Hills Cop' franchise, not a re-boot or an adaptation mind you, but an all-new series focusing on the legendary police officer's son! And while the jury's still out on whether or not Eddie Murphy would reprise his iconic character for the TV series, we've just learned that 'Tropic Thunder' star Brandon T. Jackson may be our new, younger 'Beverly Hills Cop,' Aaron Foley!
CBS certainly seems to be making power-plays for more high-profile content these days, with the eye network likely to snag Robin Williams' upcoming TV deal should the project go to series. Certainly a few big gets were needed after NBC picked up Michael J. Fox's big return to TV, but will 'Beverly Hills Cop' be just the shot in the tailpipe CBS needs to keep its spot as the number-one rated network?
