With each passing update on CBS’ Beverly Hills Cop series, the absence of Judge Reinhold became more deeply felt. After all, a Beverly Hills Cop TV series without Judge Reinhold is, dare we say, a pointlessly opportunistic exploitation of an established comedy brand in watered-down CBS procedural form that does not have Judge Reinhold. But apparently we need worry nor concoct absurd explanations about a coked-up Judge Reinhold waging a scorched-earth war against co-star John Ashton no more: The Wrap reassures us that Reinhold will be a part of at least the pilot, briefly reprising his role of Detective Billy Rosewood, who has “scored a big promotion from his old job.” So we can all relax. Presumably producers were forced to journey deep into the jungles to find Reinhold, approaching him after one of his daily stick-fights to convince him to come full circle and see the mission through. “Not this time. My war’s over,” Reinhold said. “Not the one inside you, Judge,” they said. “Not the one inside.”
