*CBS has given a pilot order to “Beverly Hills Cop,” reports

As previously reported, a TV version of the Eddie Murphy film franchise had a pilot production commitment and had already cast Brandon T. Jackson as the lead.

The show would be a continuation of the movies, but centered instead around the police officer son of Murphy’s character Axel Foley. The son, played by Jackson, continues to take down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.

Murphy is set to appear in the pilot and will executive produce with Shawn Ryan, who wrote the script, as well as Ryan’s producing partner Marney Hochman.
