Earlier this week, we informed you about the Rush Hour films being adapted as a television series. Since then, an announcement was released that CBS has landed the hour-long action/comedy pilot.
CBS has been aggressively landing series commitments, landing another Warner Bros TV series two weeks after a series commitment to Supergirl.
The series will be co-written and executive produced by Bill Lawrence (Ground Floor, Cougar Town, Spin City, Scrubs). Director Brett Ratner, who directed all three Rush Hour films, will serve as executive producer along with Arthur Sarkissian, who also produced all three films.
The movie featured a by-the-book Hong Kong police officer (Jackie Chan) assigned to a case in Los Angeles. He is forced to work with a cocky black LAPD officer (Chris Tucker), who has no interest in working with a partner. The series version of Rush Hour will stay close to the premise of the original film as possible.
Will you tune in to Rush Hour, or would you rather see a 4th film instead? Feel free to post your thoughts.
