Brandon T. Jackson is playing the lead, Aaron Foley, son of Alex in the new Beverley Hills Cop TV show. Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold are both back (for the pilot at least). Barry Sonnenfeld is directing the pilot.
Beverly Hills Cop will center on Aaron, Axel’s blue-collar Detroit police officer son, and his fish-out-of-water efforts to take down criminals in Beverly Hills while living in his father’s shadow.
The Shield creator, Shawn Ryan, is the showrunner so the series has the potential to go to some dark places as hinted at in the original film. Hopefully it won’t just end up being a cheesy police procedural comedy.
