    What, no takers? Or did the Whedon/SHIELD news just steal this thing's thunder? :hehe:

    Sounds like it could be fun.

    Hopefully it gets picked up by a cable network. Fx or USA could be good.

    NBC will probably air lift a bank vault onto Murphy's property to get the series on their network.

    Eddie Murphy as Axel and Michael J.Fox in a new comedy will outdraw whatever new shows Fox, CBS or ABC debut next fall.

    If Community is canceled can they get Donald Glover as Axel's son?

    If Murphy isn't strongly considering having a regular role in this, he's got another thing coming. Come on, Eddie..... your movie star days are passed. At least on TV, you might be treated as if you deserve respect.... or in other words: not like a man who's starred in films like Norbit and Pluto Nash. :o

    Shawn Ryan as the showrunner intrigues me in that I wonder how comedic the series will be given the involvement of the creator of THE SHIELD.

    He should be in every episode. Have it so that Billy moved there to help Axel out etc

    Murphy may just be apart of the pilot and may remain as Last Resort showrunner or he may leave Last Resort to someone else if it isn't canceled and become showrunner for BHC.

    TOLDJA!
    If Murphy's character is going to be in Detroit and his son in Beverly Hills, that probably will limit the cameos. Alec Baldwin was only supposed to be in the 30 Rock pilot, then 8 episodes and then he was on for the entire series.

    The BHC Trilogy, Adjusted For Inlfation
    1 Beverly Hills Cop Par. $538,543,100 $234,760,478 12/5/84
    2 Beverly Hills Cop II Par. $315,190,200 $153,665,036 5/20/87
    3 Beverly Hills Cop III Par. $81,763,500 $42,614,912 5/25/94

    So if this gets picked up where do you think it lands on CBS' solid schedule? CSI's Wednesday at 10pm slot or The Good Wife's 9pm Sunday one?

    It won't happen unless it moves to a different night, but I'd love seeing this paired with Hawaii Five-0.

    Even more epic: make them part of a shared universe. Have the occasional crossover.

    Well they already did a crossover with NCIS so a "Beverly Hill/Hawaii Five-0" crossover episode probably isn't out of the question.

    Knowing CBS they'll probably do a crossover in the second season and a spinoff in the third.

    I can't wait to see who they get to direct the pilot. Who's good in action these days?

    Its a shame Damon Waynes Jr is doing Happy Endings because he would make a good Axel Foley Jr.
