'Beverly Hills Cop': CBS Passes On Pilot, But The Show Could Find A Home

"Beverly Hills Cop" won't air on CBS, but it's not quite over for the TV reboot of the popular movie franchise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers Sony and Paramount are exploring their options for finding a new home for the series. The pilot starred Brandon T. Jackson as Aaron Foley, the son of Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy). "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan was behind the "Beverly Hills Cop" reboot that was considered a sure thing at CBS.

Murphy, who was an executive producer on the pilot, appeared in the "Beverly Hills Cop" reboot and was likely going to have a recurring role on the series. The cast also included Judge Reinhold and Christine Lahti.

The network also ordered "Intelligence" starring Josh Holloway, "Hostages" starring Toni Collette, "Crazy Ones" with Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar, Will Arnett's "The Millers" and "We Are Men" starring Tony Shalhoub.
