Eddie Murphy reprises his role as cop Axel Foley in the pilot, which revolves around his son trying to set out of the detective's infamous shadow. Brandon T. Jackson plays Aaron Foley, and some speculate that it was his performance that tanked the show. Others believe it is the contentious relationship between CBS and Paramount, which exercised an option to buy into the show.
It is being speculated this morning that Beverly Hills Cop, which was the subject of a heated bidding war, will be shopped to other networks and might possibly find a home on cable where it could reinstate the R rated nature of its origin film, 1984's Beverly Hills Cop.
