"Beverly Hills Cop" has landed at CBS. According to Vulture, CBS has nabbed the "Beverly Hills Cop" TV project from "The Shield's" Shawn Ryan and film series star Eddie Murphy. The series will serve as a sequel to the film.

CBS has given a pilot production commitment to the project.

The new series will follow Aaron Foley, the son of Murphy's film character Axel Foley, as he polices the rich and famous and tries to escape his father's shadow. Murphy will appear in the pilot and could recur if the pilot makes it to series. No other casting has been announced.
