Having found critical success with 'Precious' and box office success with 'The Butler,' director Lee Daniels is preparing to use his newfound clout to tackle a story that's been spinning its wheels in Hollywood for quite some time: the life story of controversial comedian Richard Pryor.

'Beverly Hills Cop 4' May Get Some Help From Jerry Bruckheimer

by Damon Houx September 12, 2013 @ 8:05 PM
When the 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV show failed to get off the ground, word was that Paramount might instead go with a new film installment of the franchise (which had been rumored for a while, with Brett Ratner supposedly set to direct it). The latest rumblings suggest a fourth film might happen, with Eddie Murphy reuniting with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who was behind the first two movies.

'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.

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?
