‘Rush Hour’ To Be Remade As Action Series From Bill Lawrence And Brett Ratner

Warner Bros TV has closed deals for the project, which will be co-written/executive produced by one of studio’s top showrunners, Bill Lawrence. The movie franchise’s director Brett Ratner and producer Arthur Sarkissian will serve as executive producers.

Written by Cougar Town co-creator Lawrence and the series’ executive producer/showrunner Blake McCormick, Rush Hour is expected to stay close to the premise of the original movie, "Rush Hour 3" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivalswith a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police officer, played in the features by Jackie Chan, assigned to a case in Los Angeles, where he’s forced to work with a cocky black LAPD officer, originally played by Chris Tucker, who has no interest in a partner. WBTV declined comment.

Produced by Warner Bros subsidiary New Line Cinema, Rush Hour was a sleeper hit when it came out in 1998, launching a successful three-movie franchise that has grossed more than $500 million domestically and topped $845 million worldwide. (Watch the trailer for the first movie above.) There had been a lot of talk about doing another sequel, with Chan indicating as recently as last month that Warner Bros. was still interested in doing a fourth Rush Hour film, but there is nothing actively in the works.

Rush Hour, from WBTV and Lawrence’s studio-based Doozer, marks a second big project for Doozer this season. A comedy from Tommy Johnagin, Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker recently landed a pilot production commitment from CBS. The ICM Partners-repped company also has series Undateable on NBC as well as Cougar Town and Ground Floor on TBS.

Before joining Cougar Town, McCormick, repped by UTA and Kaplan Perrone, worked on Fox’s King Of The Hill. Last season, Lawrence and McCormick teamed for another hourlong action buddy comedy, Chasing Skips, which had a put pilot commitment at Fox.

Rush Hour joins another big movie title, Minority Report, which was sold as a series to Fox with a put pilot commitment. Ratner has strong ties with Warner Bros. on the feature side. He and his RatPac Entertainment partner James Packer have a first-look deal at the studio. And the duo, along with Steven Mnuchin, have a $450 million deal to co-finance the entire slate of Warner Bros films.

    Bill Lawrence's involvement has my attention tho. From Clone High to Scrubs to Cougar Town, he got hit shows.

    Ive seen some of scrubs. Has some funny 🤬 . Never watched cougar town. Figured itd be a chick show. is it really worth checking out?

    I wasnt too crazy about rush hour 2 and 3. 2 was ok. 3 was eh. The first one was cool but it had Tucker in his best years so that helped a lot.

    Blame Chris Tucker SMMFH, he played himself asking for way too much when they asked if he'd be cool with doing a 4th SMMFH. He played himself cuz he owe the IRS an arm and a leg & aint got no movie roles now. Now they know he need it & tryna low ball him.

    Yo but a TV show could be really really successful if done right. They might be able to pull off a modern version of Miami Vice, I can't front I'd tune in.

    It was basically the first half of Rush Hour 1, smh. The actor playing Carter and the one playing Li are both horrible. Compared to this, Tucker and Chan deserve Oscars.

    I'm saying. Just from the commercials it seemed like the picked the worst possible actors they could find. The black dude is downright annoying with every line he delivers.

    I promised myself after seeing the trailer that I wouldn't watch it...SMDH @ me breaking my promise

    This was on already?? Won't watch any f this show.

    I don't understand how this was a good idea. That said, it seems lilike it could have been decent in that "I won't dvr it but I'll watch it if I'm doing something else" kind of way IF they didn't cast the black dude. He's super extra and just all wrong. Wish they coulda got the other son of Damon Wayans or somebody in that lane.

    The commercials alone looked wack. And the Black dude seems like your stereotypical loudmouth, immature idiot.

    Just watched. It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Had some good laughs. I'll keep it scheduled on the PVR for now.
