CBS scores Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan's Beverly Hills Cop TV project

Jackson, 28, will play Aaron Foley, who has followed in his father Detective Axel Foley's (Eddie Murphy) footsteps as a police officer in Beverly Hills. Murphy will reprise his role in the pilot, which will serve as a sequel to the memorable '80s big-screen comedy trilogy. News first broke about a Beverly Hills Cop TV project back in August, when it was revealed that Murphy would executive-produce the project with The Shield creator and executive producer Shawn Ryan. The pilot has been described as an hourlong procedural with strong comedic elements.

Jackson is known for his roles in Tropic Thunder, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son. He most recently guest-starred on Raising Hope last year.
