FOX's Lethal Weapon — Trailer


added: Mon, May 16th '16

Danny Glover isn't the only one that's too old for this sh-t. Check out the new trailer for FOX's new action series "Lethal Weapon," in which comedian Damon Wayans Sr. steps into Glover's shoes, playing the small-screen version of Detective Roger Murtaugh, while Clayne Crawford ("Rectify") takes on the Mel Gibson role of Sergeant Martin Riggs.

The upcoming series basically reboots the "Lethal Weapon" franchise, retelling the unlikely partnership between a seasoned homicide detective and family man, Roger Murtaugh (Wayans Sr), and a loose cannon, narcotic officer Martin Riggs (Crawford) as they investigate a dangerous drug-smuggling ring in Los Angeles.

Developed and written by Matt Miller, of FOX's short-lived sci-fi series "Forever," and NBC's spy comedy series "Chuck," the pilot episode is directed by the show's executive producer McG (Charlie's Angels ). The cast also includes Keesha Sharp, Kevin Rahm, Chandler Kinney, Johnathan Fernandez, and Jordana Brewster as Dr. Maureen "Mo" Cahill, the appointed therapist who is deciding if Sgt. Riggs is sane enough to still carry a badge.

"Lethal Weapon" will air sometime in the fall on FOX.

Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective MARTIN RIGGS (Clayne Crawford, "Rectify") moves to California to "start over" at the LAPD. He’s paired up with ROGER MURTAUGH (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s prudent, by-the-book technique. It’s clear from the moment they meet, this partnership could be lethal. But during their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh on a high-speed chase culminating inside the Long Beach Grand Prix and into a seaport shootout with drug dealers – and despite his protests, the older cop feels more alive than he has in years. Meanwhile, Riggs gets a glimpse of why Murtaugh is so determined to get home safely at the end of each day – he’s got a family and a newborn baby of his own. By the time their investigation ends, Riggs realizes he may have found something worth living for – a partner and friend like Murtaugh. And even Murtaugh figures this arrangement might just work out after all. If only Riggs doesn’t get them killed first...
