Show Synopsis

Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, LETHAL WEAPON tells the story of classic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, as they 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 Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford – Rectify) moves to California to “start over” at the LAPD. He’s paired up with Roger Murtaugh (Emmy® nominee Damon Wayans – My Wife and 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, that this partnership is doomed. But during their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh on a freeway chase and into a 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 and a newborn baby of his own. By the time their investigation ends, Riggs realizes he may have found something worth living for — a partner and friend in Murtaugh. Even Murtaugh figures this arrangement might just work out after all. If only Riggs doesn’t get them killed first…
