Eddie Murphy's 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV series gets thumbs down from CBS
Axel Foley, take a seat. Deadline.com reports that CBS has decided against airing the Beverly Hills Cop reboot, which was backed by Eddie Murphy.
Rumor has it that Murphy, who appears in a cameo in the pilot along with former co-star Judge Reinhold, was outshining star Brandon T. Jackson, who plays Axel's son. Oh, that's a shocker. Come on, Eddie. Find your OWN project to star in.
Lest you think this is it for Axel, fear not: Multiple sources say the TV series will be shopped to other networks.
