"Beverly Hills Cop: The Series" is officially dead, but "Beverly Hills Cop 4" has come back to life.
"The Shield" and "Last Resort" creator Shawn Ryan wanted to revive the franchise
as a TV series but back in May--CBS passed on the already produced pilot.
Since then he has been trying to get one of the other networks to pick it up, He admitted yesterday on Twitter that nobody wanted it. There is an unexpected silver lining though.
"Sad to report that efforts to land Beverly Hills Cop Pilot at another network have failed. This iteration is dead for now. Good news for fans of franchise is that the pilot tested so well, it has caused Paramount to put another #BHC movie into development."
No further details were given about the movie or whether the series pilot star Brandon T. Jackson would return as Axel Foley's (Eddie Murphy) son.
