Take a look at what he had to say through his Twitter account, then read on for more information.

Sad to report that efforts to land Beverly Hills Cop pilot at another network have failed. This iteration is dead for now. (Cont...)— Shawn Ryan (@ShawnRyanTV) July 20, 2013

‘Beverly Hills Cop’ TV Series Moves Forward with Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan

‘Beverly Hills Cop’ TV Series Moves Forward with Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan

Last year, when Eddie Murphy was promoting the comedy Tower Heist, many were hoping for an update on the long-gestating Beverly Hills Cop 4. Instead, he made the surprising revelation that the sequel is dead, and that he is working on a Beverly Hills Cop TV series. Today, we have word that the actor is teaming up with The Shield creator Shawn Ryan and Sony Pictures Television to make this show a reality.

However, don't expect the series to center on Eddie Murphy's Axel Foley. The original report revealed that the actor would show up "here and there" in the series, but it will mainly focus on Foley's son, with Axel now serving as the Detroit Chief of Police.

The SUNDAY FUNNIES: 'Honest' Best Picture Posters and ‘The Vampire Diaries’' Racy Ads

It seems that Frances McDormand has been cast in the most Coen Brothers movies, appearing in six of their 15 movies, although that's not terribly surprising since she is married to Joel Coen. Jon Polito, John Goodman, and Steve Buscemi are next with five movies each. The Coen's certainly do have intriguing tastes when it comes to actors. Hell, they even cast Tara Reid in The Big Lebowski. Oh well, nobody's perfect... Anyway, any fan of the Coen's will surely get a kick out of this awesome chart.

It would be great if some prankster actually swapped these out with the actual photos at their local multiplexes. I'm not advocating such trickery... but I'd love pictures to prove such trickery if someone takes the initiative... not that I'm advocating it...

‘Terriers’ Series Premiere Cast and Crew Interviews

Terriers debuts on Wednesday, September 8 at 10 PM ET on FX The FX Network is set to premiere its latest series Terriers on Wednesday, September 8 at 10 PM ET and the cable network held yet another Hollywood event to celebrate this new addition to their lineup. The cast and producers of the show held a special screening of the pilot episode at Arclight Hollywood and they hit the red carpet beforehand to discuss the show.

Since you might not know much about the series, due to its bizarre (yet effective) marketing campaign, the show stars Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James as ex-cop Hank Dolworth and ex-criminal Britt Pollack, two longtime friends who decide to become unlicensed private detectives and, in doing so, become embroiled in an intriguing conspiracy. The cast is rounded out by Kimberly Quinn, who plays Gretchen Dolworth, Hank's ex-wife, Laura Allen as Katie Nichols, Britt's girlfriend, Rockmond Dunbar playing Detective Mark Gustafson, an ex-colleague of Hank's, and Jamie Denbo portraying Maggie Lefferts, Hank's lawyer. The kicker, though (for me, at least) is that the series was created by Ocean's Eleven screenwriter Ted Griffin and also has The Shield creator Shawn Ryan on board as an executive producer and writer, with Craig Brewer directing the pilot. That's one hell of a TV trifecta, folks.
