Beverly Hills Cop TV series creator Shawn Ryan (The Shield, Last Resort) has given us our first look at Eddie Murphy and Brandon T. Jackson on the set of this CBS pilot. Eddie Murphy reprises his role as Axel Foley from the Beverly Hills Cop movie franchise, with Brandon T. Jackson playing his son Aaron, a rookie at the Beverly Hills Police Department. Axel is now the chief of police in Detroit, and, if the show is picked up to series by CBS, Eddie Murphy will have a recurring role. Shawn Ryan also sent out another photo showcasing Axel's iconic Detroit Lions jacket that will be featured in the show.
