Carter and Lee’s crime-fighting days are over; CBS is not moving forward with a second season of Rush Hour, TVLine has learned.
Based on the 1998 Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker film of the same name, CBS’ procedural starred Justin Hires and Jon Foo as a pair of polar-opposite detectives — James Carter and Jonathan Lee, respectively — forced to partner up on the mean streets of Los Angeles.
Rush Hour also starred Aimee Garcia as Sergeant Didi Diaz, Carter’s former partner; Page Kennedy as Gerald Page, a criminal-turned-informant who also happens to be Carter’s cousin; and Wendie Malick as Captain Lindsay Cole, a no-nonsense boss with eyes for Detective Lee.
In addition to the original film series’ producers, CBS’ Rush Hour also counted Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougartown) among its executive producers.
