A TV adaptation of a blockbuster movie franchise is among a number of pilot pickups CBS made late Monday. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network is moving ahead with an adaptation of “Rush Hour.”
CBS also ordered a “Super Clyde” adaptation from Greg Garcia, along with “Joe Time” from “Modern Family’s” Bill Wrubel, the report notes.
The “Rush Hour” project comes from “Cougar Town’s” Bill Lawrence. “The TV remake is in similar tone to the New Line Cinema films and follows a by-the-book Hong Kong police officer who is assigned to a case in L.A., where he’s forced to work with a cocky black LAPD officer who has no interest in a partner,” the article reports, adding that casting is currently taking place.
