This month, the first ever TV reboot of 'Rush Hour', adapted from the blockbuster action-comedy series with the same name, will be telecast. A 4-hour TV premiere of 'Rush Hour' will be aired on Zee Cafe on April 22 at 8 PM, thereafter, the show will air once a week every Friday at 11 PM.
'Rush Hour' first released in 1998 and emerged as a success at the box office. Centered on two crazy cops and their misadventures, the film’s response world over prompted a sequel ('Rush Hour 2') in 2001 followed by the third installment ('Rush Hour 3') in 2006.
Now, a decade later, fresh cast -- Jon Foo and Justin Hires -- reprise the iconic characters and their love-hate camaraderie on the small screen.
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 moments 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.
