Argo actress Sheila Vand is to appear in the new Beverly Hills Cop TV pilot.

Based on the Eddie Murphy films, the CBS comedy will star Brandon T Jackson as police officer Aaron Foley - son of Murphy's character Axel.

Vand will play the show's female lead Leila, a fellow Beverly Hills detective who comes from a privileged background, Deadline reports.

The Iranian-American actress appeared in Ben Affleck's Oscar-nominated Argo as Sahar and currently plays a recurring role on new CW drama series Cult.

Murphy will reprise his role of Axel Foley in the Beverly Hills Cop pilot, which is being directed by Men in Black's Barry Sonnenfeld.

If the project is picked up to series, Murphy is expected to recur throughout the first season.
