A Beverly Hills Cop TV Series has been in the air since October of last year, but last week it was officially announced, and today we’ve learned that it will air on CBS.
I’ve enjoyed all of the Beverly Hills Cop films, and I can see a series based on that franchise being hillariously great. I definitely see the potential, but it has to be done right. So far the talent involved gives me hope. Eddie Murphy will serve as an executive producer along side The Shield creator Shawn Ryan. Ryan did an incredible job with The Shield, which makes me believe he will be able to turn this franchise into an awesome series.
Ryan will serve as the writer and showrunner as well, and Murphy will reprise his role in the series guest starring in it from time to time. The series will serve as a sequel to the first three films that chronicled the exploits of wise-cracking Detroit detective Axel Foley (Murphy) in Los Angeles. “The proposed series has a similar fish-out-of-water setup and centers on Axel Foley’s blue-collar police officer son, Aaron, who helps take down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills while trying to escape the shadow of his larger-than-life father.”
Do you think this will end up being a solid series, or do you think they will drop the ball? I’m also curious to know what your favorite of the three Beverly Hills Cop films is.
