Telemystery: CBS Officially Orders Pilots for Backstrom and Beverly Hills Cop

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

Earlier today we reported on Telemystery pilots ordered by ABC and Fox. Now we have pilot news from CBS … though neither of these potential series is actually "new" news.

CBS is confirming its pilot order for Backstrom, based on a character created by Swedish crime novelist Leif G. W. Persson. Stockholm police inspector Evert Backstrom was introduced in 2005 in Linda … som i Lindamordet (Linda … as in the Linda Murder), the English translation of which will be published next month in the UK (and presumably will be available here in the US later this year). Hart Hanson (Bones) has written the pilot screenplay.

Also ordered by CBS is the television series adaptation of the film Beverly Hills Cop, first announced last September. Brandon T. Jackson stars as Axel Foley's police officer son Aaron, who like his dad (Eddie Murphy's character in the film … who is also expected to appear in the pilot) finds himself walking the Beverly Hills beat. Shawn Ryan (The Last Resort, The Shield) has written the pilot screenplay.
