The actor will portray Beverly Hills detective Brad Fullmer, who is described as "strong, loyal, and socially awkward, but a good guy to have on your side." The character is considered to be the modern-day equivalent to Judge Reinhold's Billy Rosewood in the original Beverly Hills Cop movie franchise. His partner at the precinct, Leila, has yet to be cast. Kevin Pollak is playing Rodney Daloof, an in-house lawyer for the Beverly Hills Police Department.
Brandon T. Jackson stars as Aaron Foley, a young cop who is trying to step out of his father Axel's looming shadow while taking down the elite criminal elements of Beverly Hills. Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as Axel, now the Detroit chief of police, in the pilot, with the potential to recur if the series is picked up by CBS.
Shawn Ryan (The Shield) wrote the pilot script and will executive produce alongside Eddie Murphy and Marney Hochman. It isn't known when the pilot will start production.
Aside from playing Roy Anderson on The Office, David Denman has also appeared in films such as Fanboys, Fair Game, along with the upcoming jOBS and After Earth.
