'Beverly Hills Cop 4' Allegedly Rising From the Ashes After Failed TV Series

A few months ago, CBS decided to pass on the 'Beverly Hills Cop' television series, which would have seen Brandon T. Jackson ('Percy Jackson') police the wealthy side of Hollywood as Axel Foley's son. And that, for lack of a better phrase, appeared to be that. However, a recent statement from series producer Shawn Ryan suggests that fans of the iconic Eddie Murphy comedy franchise may have something to look forward to.

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?

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!

'Beverly Hills Cop' TV Series Taps Judge Reinhold to Return, Finally

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?

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?

Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan May Take 'Beverly Hills Cop' to TV

by Damon Houx August 28, 2012 @ 7:24 PM
If you were a child of the 1980's, chances are that you love Eddie Murphy. You can probably recite much of his stand up from his special 'Delirious' ("Lemonade... that cool refreshing drink") or bits from 'Trading Places' or 'Beverly Hills Cop' by heart. And though Eddie Murphy has spent much of the last two decades disappointing fans on the big screen, it looks like he may be taking his biggest franchise to the small screen.

Arnold Schwarzenegger continues to ease back into acting following a lengthy political career. He’s getting his feet wet with standard action fare like ‘Expendables’ installments and the upcoming ‘The Last Stand.’ But the Muscles from Brussels also used to dabble in comedy, and he opened up about plans to do a ‘Twins’ feature during a recent interview.
