What's the point of a TV show based on Lethal Weapon?

There's an adaptation of the film series starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the works:
Just when you thought you were too old for this shit, Fox goes ahead and continues the trend of making shows based on once-popular franchises. This time, it's the mismatched cop magic of the Lethal Weapon franchise that turned Mel Gibson into a movie superstar.

Fox and Warner Bros. TV are in the early stages of developing an hour-long drama based on the films, Deadline reports. So far, there's a put pilot commitment in place, so the project has a long way to go before we're wondering who should play Riggs and Murtaugh.

If you aren't familiar with the Lethal Weapon films, then who are you? Gibson and Danny Glover starred as a pair of Los Angeles cops, one who worked by the book and the other who probably never even read a book. Four Lethal Weapon movies made it to theaters between 1987 and 1998, and all were hits.
Yeah, but would that be the same today after Gibson turned out to be such an embarrassment, and Glover too? Probably not. Plus, I've been thinking maybe I am getting too old for...okay, you get it. Simply put, I haven't cared for those movies in years, and Gibson's own scandal only made me feel more discouraged to revisit them. Sure, I know he could probably redeem himself of his nasty attitude towards Jews, and Glover too, but to date, they haven't shown any sign of relenting, and so I have no idea if they've come to their senses.

And even if they do, I still just don't feel up to watching the 4 movies anymore, let alone a TV series based on them.
