Lethal Weapon Series Casts Murtaugh’s Wife

“Girlfriends” and “Hart Of Dixie” star Golden Brooks is set to co-star with Damon Wayans Sr. in FOX’s pilot for a TV series based on the “Lethal Weapon” buddy cop action franchise.

Matt Miller pens and McG helms the pilot in which Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs suffers the loss of his wife and baby, and moves to Los Angeles to start anew.

There, he is partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (Wayans), who, having recently suffered a ‘minor’ heart attack, must avoid stress in his life. Brooks will play Murtaugh’s hardworking, perceptive and loving wife Trish, a role Darlene Love played in the films.

Miller, McG, Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz are executive producers on the series.
