Billy Rosewood and Axel Foley are all set to reunite on the small screen. Judge Reinhold has signed on for a cameo appearance on the CBS TV pilot Beverly Hills Cop.
The actor portrayed Billy Rosewood in Beverly Hills Cop, Beverly Hills Cop 2, and Beverly Hills Cop 3, which starred Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley. In the pilot, Axel has worked his way up the ranks and is now the Detroit chief of police. Rosewood has also been promoted at the Beverly Hills Police Department, though it isn't know which position he currently holds down.
Brandon T. Jackson stars as Aaron Foley, Axel's son, a young Beverly Hills police officer who is trying to break out of his father's looming shadow. Kevin Pollak, David Denman, and Sheila Vand also star. If the pilot is picked up to series, Eddie Murphy will recur as Axel throughout the first season.
Shawn Ryan wrote the pilot script and will executive produce with Eddie Murphy and Marney Hochman. It isn't known when shooting will begin on the pilot.
