Crawford will take on the character made famous by Mel Gibson in the hit film franchise. He’ll star opposite Damon Wayans, Sr. as his newly appointed partner Roger Murtaugh.
Riggs is a former Navy SEAL and Texas cop who suffers the loss of his wife and baby and tries to start anew by moving to Los Angeles and a new job at the LAPD. Jordana Brewster, Golden Brooks and Kevin Rahm also star in the potential series.
Matt Miller, McG, Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz will executive produce with McG helming the pilot.
