Eddie Murphy reprised his big-screen role of Axel Foley in the pilot from The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, with Brandon T Jackson starring as the show's lead - Axel's son Aaron.

"It's still in contention in the market; there's still lots of interest," a source said. "You will find that show on air."

CBS rejected a number of high-profile pilots this season, including the spinoff show NCIS: Red and Rupert Grint's sitcom Super Clyde.

New series picked up by the network include Josh Holloway spy drama Intelligence and comedy The Crazy Ones starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
