Beverly Hills Cop Pilot Rejected, Producers To Try Other Networks

jackson and murphyDespite having The Shield and TerriersShawn Ryan in charge, Men in Black‘s Barry Sonnenfeld directing and stars of the original movies involved, the next gen Beverly Hills Cop pilot hasn’t been picked up for a series by CBS. Sadly, I’d expect that’s the end of it. It usually is.

There is some chance that another network could pick up the show, I suppose, with The Hollywood Reporter saying that Sony and Paramount are shopping it around.

TV is changing quite quickly at the moment, with on-demand leaping ahead quickly and shows being commissioned that will never see broadcast. I wouldn’t be surprised if a new evolution arises soon, something that will give unsuccessful pilots a home on streaming services like Netflix. It could be a way of underwriting some of the expense at least.

Surely a project with as much brand recognition and, at least relatively speaking, star power as Beverly Hills Cop would be a great candidate for such treatment? Call it Beverly Hills Cop: The Next Generation or something like that, treat it as a one-off special and Bob’s your Uncle, Axel Foley’s your Dad and everybody’s laughing.

Or maybe that’s just my appetite for the show talking.
