According to reports, Eddie Murphy is in talks to bring his hit Beverly Hills Cop to TV…
MTV.com reports:

Murphy has teamed with “The Shield” mastermind Shawn Ryan and Sony Pictures Television on a TV adaptation of the franchise [Beverly Hills Cop] that began in 1984.

To sweeten the pot, not only is Murphy being touted as an executive producer, but he’s also reportedly agreed to an on-camera role. The latter would mark the “Tower Heist” star’s first non-animated regular starring turn on TV since his 1980-1984 career-making run on “Saturday Night Live.”

Eddie tells Rolling Stone, “what I’m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit … I’d do the pilot, show up here and there.”

 Stay Tuned.
