CBS Has Picked Up a "Beverly Hills Cop" Sequel Series

CBS has just picked up a sequel series to the 1984 action comedy movie Beverly Hills Cop, which is being produced by the original film's star Eddie Murphy, and The Shield creator Shawn Ryan. The show, which according to Vulture is being described as "a continuation of the iconic Beverly Hills Cop universe," has been given a pilot production commitment by the network.

It will follow Beverly Hills cop Aaron Foley - the son of Murphy's character Axel Foley from the film - who tries to "take down the criminal elements of the rich and famous, while simultaneously trying to escape the shadow of his larger than life father." Murphy is expected to appear in the pilot, and may recur throughout the series.

What do you think of this sequel?
