6 TV Shows We'd Like To See Get The Big-Screen
Even for the non-marshmallows among us, the “Veronica Mars” movie, which hits theaters this week (our SXSW review here), being brought back from the dead by a combination of fan activism, creator and cast agitation and Kickstarter-related chutzpah, is at the very least an interesting phenomenon. The long-defunct TV show that gets its day on the big screen with original cast intact is a rare and precious event achieved by only a few, but the possibility is often endlessly bandied around for many for years after the show has ended.

Shawn Ryan's "Beverly Hills Cop" television series, which had everyone buzzing a week ago, has landed at CBS, according to Deadline. The network, which we're pretty sure is almost exclusively for people's elderly uncles, has given it a pilot commitment. The new series will follow the exploits of Aaron Foley, the son of Axel Foley, the Eddie Murphy character from the three successful Paramount movies. Murphy will produce and co-star in the pilot, with a possibility for future appearances should the show be ordered to series.
