Brandon T Jackson will play the show's lead Aaron Foley - son of Axel Foley, Eddie Murphy's character from the original film franchise.

Murphy himself is expected to play a recurring role on the potential series, making sporadic appearances as Axel.

In addition to his movie credits, Sonnenfeld directed the pilot for cult TV comedy The Tick and two episodes of ABC comedy-drama Pushing Daisies.

Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects) will also star in the Beverly Hills Cop TV pilot, which is in contention for a series pick-up at CBS.
