Axel Foley is back!!!
The wise crackin' Detroit cop who catapulted Eddie Murphy into superstardom will collar crooks again in 90210.
Eddie and Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield, are joining forces to create Beverly Hills Cop the TV show!!
Our hearts were broken after last year's revelation that
Donkey Eddie passed on Beverly Hills Cop 4 but why shoot a two hour movie when you can make dozens of hours of TV instead??
Eddie will reprise his old character, but not how you might expect.
The majority of his work on the show is behind-the-scenes, as an executive producer.
He could hand the reigns over to a different young actor or actress, perhaps Axel's kid, to play a new generation of cop from a harsh big city who clashes with the posh eccentricities of Beverly Hills!!
We're BEYOND thrilled by this revelation but we do have a few non-negotiable demands.
First, don't screw with Axel F. Not ever. It's the greatest theme-songs out there.
Second, can we find some cameo room for Bronson Pinchot or Judge Reinhold would be nice, LOLz!!
The pilot and concepts are currently being pitched to networks, though we would be more surprised than a nun having spontaneous multiple-orgasms if this one isn't scooped up fast!
