Scott was brought onboard the series to replace the show's former star, Clayne Crawford, who was fired by the network after complaints were made about his behavior on-set.

No word yet on how the show will tackle Crawford's character's exit. He played Detective Martin Riggs to Wayans' Roger Murtaugh.
