The first ever TV reboot of ‘Rush Hour’ adapted from the blockbuster action-comedy series with the same name will go on air on Zee Cafe. Zee Café will showcase a four-hour TV premiere of Rush Hour on April 22, 8 PM. Thereafter, the show will air once a week every Friday at 11 PM.
The movie had legendary actor Jackie Chan along with Chris Tucker, whereas Jon Foo and Justin Hires will reprise the iconic characters and their love-hate camaraderie on the small screen.
Rush Hour, which was centered on two crazy cops and their misadventures, first released in 1998 and emerged as a huge success at the box office. Rush Hour 2 was out in 2001 followed by the third installment Rush Hour 3 in 2006.
A decade later, viewers get a rare chance to experience that madness in a new format and with a completely fresh cast.
Much like the film, Rush Hour is a high-stakes, action-packed one-hour series featuring the fun buddy-cop equation with fast cracking comedic moment’s audiences crave.
Detective Lee, a stoic, by the book, Hong Kong police detective, lands up in LA and must work on a case with the irreverent and brash Detective Carter. The two must learn to work together despite their hilarious differences as they solve a new case in each episode.
