CBS is not a fan of Beverly Hills.

The network opted to pass on the TV version of “Beverly Hills Cop,” which would star Brandon T. Jackson as the son of Axel Foley, who was played by Eddie Murphy. The news came as a shock in some circles as the brand recognition and the promise of occasional appearances by Murphy seemed to be a sure thing.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the series may be shopped to other networks now that CBS has committed to not carry the drama.
