Beverly Hills Cop stars Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold are set to reteam on the small screen for the pilot of a new spin-off series.

The two co-stars of the three Beverly Hills Cop movies will reprise their roles as Axel Foley and Billy Rosewood to give the new show a big ratings boost before handing it over to a newcomer who will portray Foley's son Aaron.

Christine Lahti has also signed on as the captain of the Beverly Hills Police Department, while David Denman, Kevin Pollak and Argo's Sheila Vand co-star.

Murphy will be among the producers of the new show.
