Eddie Murphy is developing a new TV show about his 'Beverly Hills Cop' character Axel Foley who has a son. Murphy ruled out a fourth 'Beverly Hills Cop' movie, but he’s planning on making cameos in the proposed TV series.
He tells the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine: “What I’m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I’d do the pilot, show up here and there.”
Murphy admits there was talk about a 'Beverly Hills Cop IV,' but “none of the movie scripts were right. It was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong.”
