Beverly Hills Cop could be coming to TV.
CBS has given a pilot order to the Beverly Hills Cop reboot from Shawn Ryan and Eddie Murphy. In this continuation of the movie franchise, Brandon T. Jackson stars as Axel Foley's police officer son, who takes down criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. Ryan will write and executive-produce alongside Murphy, who will also co-star, and Marney Hochman.
Additionally, CBS has given pilot orders to Friends With Better Lives, a comedy about a group of thirtysomething friends who each think the other has it better. Dana Klein will write and executive-produce with Aaron Kaplan.
Also receiving a pilot order is Backstrom, a drama from Bones' Hart Hanson. It's based on the Swedish book series about an overweight, offensive, irascible detective as he tries, and fails, to change his self-destructive behavior. Hanson will write and executive-produce, alongside Leif G.W. Persson and Niclas Salomonsson.
