Fox has greenlighted a pilot based on the hit Mel Gibson/Danny Glover franchise Lethal Weapon. Produced by Warner Bros.Television, in which its film division produced the four features in the 1980’s and early 90’s.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “…the TV version centers on a Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs (originally played by Gibson) 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 (Glover), who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid any stress in his life.
The Fox show will be written and executive produced by Matt Miller (Forever, Chuck) along with Executive Producers Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz
