“Lethal Weapon – TV Show Trailer #1 [HD]”
Synopsis: Combining action and drama with friendship and humor, “Lethal Weapon” reboots the hit movie franchise, as it follows classic cop duo Riggs & Murtaugh, who are working a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles.
Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife & unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) moves to California to “start over” at the LAPD. He’s paired up with Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife & Kids”, “In Living Color”), 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. It’s clear from the moment they meet, this partnership could be lethal.
But during their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh on a high-speed chase culminating inside the Long Beach Grand Prix and into a seaport shootout with drug dealers – and despite his protests, the older cop feels more alive than he has in years. Meanwhile, Riggs gets a glimpse of why Murtaugh is so determined to get home safely at the end of each day – he’s got a family & a newborn baby of his own.
By the time their investigation ends, Riggs realizes he may have found something worth living for – a partner & friend like Murtaugh. And even Murtaugh figures this arrangement might just work out after all. If only Riggs doesn’t get them killed first…
