CBS passes on ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ pilot
Eddie Murphy’s show has been shot down before it ever made it to air. EURWeb.com reports that CBS has opted not to pick up Eddie’s TV adaptation of Beverly HIlls Cop, which would have starred Brandon T. Jackson.
Eddie would have appeared in the pilot as Axel Foley while Brandon would have played his son, who is getting into Axel’s line of work. While several networks were vying for the hour-long crime comedy, CBS decided against adding the show to its roster after seeing the pilot.
There’s no word on whether “Beverly Hills Cop” will be picked up by any of the other networks that were interested in it.
