The Beverly Hills Cop TV series seemed to be a sure bet. Even when CBS passed on the spin-off, showrunner Shawn Ryan believed another network would save the drama.

Unfortunately, Ryan announced Friday that the Beverly Hills Cop TV revival was dead, but not all hope is lost.

"Sad to report that efforts to land Beverly Hills Cop pilot at another network have failed. This iteration is dead for now," Ryan tweeted. "Good news for fans of franchise is that the pilot tested so well, it has caused Paramount to put another #BHC movie into development."

It remains unclear whether the pilot's stars Brandon T. Jackson and Christine Lahti will be a part of the film.
