Add to that Rush Hour, based on the Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker series.

CBS’s Rush Hour stars John Foo and Justin Hires as Detectives Lee and Carter. The pilot tells how Lee comes to Los Angeles and works with Carter at first grudgingly, but ultimately agrees to stay as partners. A new development is Carter’s chief (Wendie Malick) flirting with Lee. The series was developed by Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick, with Steve Franks joining the team as producer.
