Damon Wayans to Lead 'Lethal Weapon' TV Show
Published Feb 12, 2016Fox's long-in-the-works television adaptation of Lethal Weapon finally has its Roger Murtaugh — In Living Color alum Damon Wayans is set to fill Danny Glover's shoes.
The reboot of the popular movie franchise is set to arrive from Warner Bros. Television, and was caught up in a bidding war between multiple networks. It was Fox that finally won out.
The Lethal Weapon series is being produced by Matt Miller (Chuck, Forever), Dan Lin (The Lego Movie) and Jennifer Gwartz.
At this point, it's still in the pilot phase. But what network exec could possibly pass on a Damon Wayans-fronted Lethal Weapon?!?
