The pilot, which will share the same name as the 1984 blockbuster that starred Eddie Murphy, is from Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and Sony TV. Here is the official logline: “A continuation of the iconic Beverly Hills Cop universe as Axel Foley’s blue-collar police officer son, Aaron, helps take down the criminal elements of the rich and famous, while simultaneously trying to escape the shadow of his larger than life father.”

Yes, Axel fans, Murphy will appear in the pilot and may recur if the drama goes to series. He’ll also exec produce the drama.
