Beverly Hills Cop Finds a Home at CBS
Having been offered up to all four of the major broadcast network, Ryan Murphy and Shawn Ryan’s Beverly Hills Cop TV series has found a home on CBS. When I last reported on the status of the project, I had an inkling CBS would be the one to nab the show. As a crime procedural, even if it is being constructed with the more humorous tone of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, it would fit right at home with the other series on CBS, such as Criminal Minds, Hawaii Five-0 and CSI. I almost think CBS only wanted this project so they could add to their ever-expanding cache of procedurals. But Beverly Hills Cop isn’t a sure thing, at least not yet.
According to TV Guide, CBS has only given Beverly Hills Cop a pilot production agreement, meaning a pilot will be written and shot, but not necessarily given a series order. The pilot, which will be a sequel to the original film series, will see Murphy reprising his role as Axel Foley, though he will not be the star of the show. This new incarnation of the franchise will follow Axel’s son, Aaron, who heads to Beverly Hills to get out from under the shadow of his father.
Outside of the pilot, Murphy would only appear in a few episodes, mostly working behind the scenes as an executive producer. Ryan will serve as showrunner for the series should it get picked up for a first season. As it stands, due to the popularity of the franchise, Beverly Hills Cop stands a good chance of making it past the pilot stage. Ryan is a talented man and will likely do the show the justice it deserves. And if CBS decides not to go through with the series, maybe they can shop it around to the other networks. The interest was certainly there. I think, one way or the other, we’re going to be seeing Beverly Hills Cop on TV.
