Fox has ordered up a Lethal Weapon series. It will follow the story of Riggs who moves to LA after the loss of his wife and child, he is teamed up with Murtaugh an older detective that has just suffered a heart attack. This is fairly similar to the plot of the original movie, while the details are slightly different the actual feel and what brings the two cops together is the same. Damon Wayans has been cast as Murtaugh and Clayne Crawford has been cast as Riggs. Reaction to the news has been mixed at best. The movies were fairly popular and long running, and it does make sense to move that formula to TV. However a lot of people feel it won’t work without the original actors, and it’s better to just let the franchise stay dead. At this point really only time will tell.
