'Lethal Weapon' returns as FOX television series

It's one of the most successful action film franchises in history, and now, "Lethal Weapon" is back as an explosive new television series.

"Lethal Weapon" premieres Wednesday night on FOX 5 Atlanta at 8 p.m., and stars Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford as Murtaugh and Riggs, the mismatched pair of cops who eventually become a dynamic crime-solving team.  The stars walked the carpet at a star-studded premiere in Los Angeles, and told Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken that this is a modern story inspired by the original film series, which first hit theatres back in 1987.

Check out Paul's interviews with the stars "Lethal Weapon" -- and don't miss the series premiere right here on FOX 5 Atlanta, followed by the season premiere of "Empire."
