FOX has reportedly handed out a hefty put-pilot commitment to a TV reboot of the “Lethal Weapon” franchise.
The network won the project following a competitive situation for the small screen version of the Mel Gibson and Danny Glover-led action series.
Warner Bros. Television will produce the series which centers on a Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs 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 who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid any stress in his life.
It also marks the latest film franchise to get a small screen reboot following the recently premiered “Limitless” and “Minority Report” along with the soon to premiere “Rush Hour”.
