Lethal Weapon reimagines the hit movie franchise, as it follows classic cop duo Riggs (Clayne Crawford) and Murtaugh (Damon Wayans), who work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective Riggs moves to California to “start over” at the LAPD. He’s paired up with Murtaugh, who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s prudent, by-the-book technique. One has everything to live for, the other has nothing to lose.
The series stars Damon Wayans, Sr. as Roger Murtaugh, Clayne Crawford as Martin Riggs, Kevin Rahm as Capt. Brooks Avery, Jordana Brewster as Dr. Maureen “Mo” Cahill, Keesha Sharp as Trish Murtaugh, Johnathan Fernandez as Scorsese, Michelle Mitchenor as Detective Bailey, Dante Brown as Roger Murtaugh Jr., Chandler Kinney as Riana Murtaugh.
