Fox is developing a television adaptation of the classic action-comedy film franchise Lethal Weapon. THR reports that the network has cast 24 alum Clayne Crawford in the role that Mel Gibson played in the films. He will star opposite Damon Wayans Sr. in the drama pilot.
“Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs suffers the loss of his wife and baby.” After that he moves to Los Angeles to start a new life. It’s there that he “gets partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (Wayans Sr.), who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid any stress in his life.”
