Los Angeles: Actor Eddie Murphy is planning to make a TV series about his ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ character Axel Foley’s son.

The actor has ruled out a return to the big screen for a fourth instalment of ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ franchise, but is likely to do a cameo in the TV series, reports imdb.com.

"What I`m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley`s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I`d do the pilot, show up here and there," he told Rolling Stone magazine.

Murphy admits there was talk about a Beverly Hills Cop IV but "none of the movie scripts were right".

"It was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn`t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong," he added.
