CBS plans to turn Antoine Fuqua's Training Day into a TV series. The network has ordered a pilot based on the 2001 film to be directed by Fuqua, who'll also executive-produce the series with Jerry Bruckheimer. Training Day the show will pick up 15 years after the events of the movie, which will be set in a modern-day Lapd. It's unclear whether or not Ethan Hawke or Denzel Washington (who won an Oscar for his villainous role) will appear on the show. (Denzel has proven the range to play anything, so why not a ghost named Detective Alonbooooo Harris? Or maybe there will be a flashback.) It's worth noting they're both onboard to star in Fuqua's next film, a Western called Magnificent Seven, out next year. No word if King Kong has gotten any shit since the film's release. »

Last week, we reported that director Antoine Fuqua and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are teaming up with Warner Bros. Television to produce a new TV series based on the 2001 crime drama Training Day. The producers were getting ready to pitch the project to all four major networks, and one week later, Variety reports that Training Day has found a home at CBS. Depending on how quickly the project moves forward, hopefully we'll hear soon about who will star in the pilot.
The original Training Day movie starred Denzel Washington in his Oscar-winning role as Lapd detective Alonzo Harris, who spends a day with one of his new recruits, Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke), on his first day as a narcotics officer. Despite Alonzo's exemplary arrest record, Jake learns quickly that Alonzo and the rest of his team are dirty cops. The series will be set 15 years after the events of the movie, »
This will be at least the 3rd cop movie with a black lead that CBS has considered turning into a weekly TV series - "Beverly Hills Cop" and "Rush Hour" are the other 2.

Jackson as Axel Foley's son (although a pilot was produced); the "Rush Hour" series, on the other hand, was ordered to series this year, as a mid-season replacement in early 2016. Jon Foo and Justin Hires are replacing Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the roles of Lee and Carter from the original movie franchise. The network (maybe the *whitest* of the so-called Big Four - ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC) has given a pilot commitment to a "Training Day" TV series adaptation, which, as was reported on Monday of this week, Antoine Fuqua had been »
