Lethal Weapon the TV Series is Coming

Are you ready to get mad? Well now’s your chance as we’ve got yet another reboot in the pipeline. This time it’s Lethal Weapon and according to THR it’s coming to TV.

“The TV version centers on a Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs (originally played by Gibson) who, following the loss of his wife and baby, moves to Los Angeles to start anew.

There, he gets partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (Glover), who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid any stress in his life.”

 

 

Like the films, the TV version centers on a Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs (originally played by Gibson) who, following the loss of his wife and baby, moves to Los Angeles to start anew. There, he gets partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (Glover), who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid any stress in his life.

Fox’s take will be written by Matt Miller (Forever, Chuck), who will executive produce via his WBTV-based Good Session banner. Lin Pictures’ Dan Lin (The Lego Movie, Sherlock Holmes) and television topper Jennifer Gwartz are set to exec produce. Lethal Weapon reunites Miller with Lin, who teamed for last year’s ABC drama Forever, which was canceled after one season.

Let’s hope this is as popular as the Beverley Hills Cop TV Series…

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
