'Rush Hour' may be made into a TV show

Yahoo Technology News - Tue, 09/30/2014 - 16:53

'Rush Hour' may be made into a TV showIt's probably impossible to replace the hilarious duo of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, but someone's going to try: Deadline reports that Rush Hour is now in the process of being adapted into a TV series. The show will be an action-comedy with hourlong episodes, and it'll likely still be about a Hong Kong police officer getting stuck with a wild LA cop. The show happening isn't a done deal just yet — it still needs to find a network — but Deadline suggests that it could be a hot property, so we just end up getting to see the remake.
