Submitted by on February 20, 2016 – 12:08 pmNo Comment

In television news, Damon Wayans Sr. and Golden Brooks have been cast in FOX’s Lethal Weapon pilot.

The project is based on the 80s/90s buddy cop action film franchise starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. According to Deadline.com:

In the pilot, written by Matt Miller and directed by McG, when Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs suffers the loss of his wife and baby, he moves to Los Angeles to start anew. There, he is partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (Wayans), who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid stress in his life.

Golden, who’s best known for playing Maya Wilkes in the beloved comedy series Girlfriends, will play Roger’s concerned and protective wife, Trish, a character played by Darlene Love in the movies.

No word yet on who will play unpredictable and unhinged Riggs, played to perfection by Gibson in the movies.
