‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Series Headed to CBS

Eddie Murphy in 'Beverly Hills Cop'


Eddie Murphy‘s Beverly Hills Cop spinoff series is moving forward with CBS.

The network has greenlit production on an hour-long pilot episode that will star Murphy as Detroit cop Axel Foley, a role he originated in the  popular film franchise. The show, however, will center around Foley’s son, Aaron, who is described as “a cop working in Beverly Hills as he does his part to escape his famous father’s shadow.”

Murphy, who will co-produce the series, has expressed interest  in casting rising comedic star Kevin Hart in the leading role of Aaron. The casting has not been confirmed.

Tell us what you think. Who should play Axel Foley’s son?
