Golden Brooks has lost out on her lead role in the new “Lethal Weapon” television series to her former “Girlfriends” co-star, Keesha Sharp.

The decision to recast the lead female role in the series was made after the first table read on Wednesday, reports Deadline. Sharp will be playing the role of Trish, wife of LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh (played by Damon Wayans).

“Excited to join the Fox pilot ‘Lethal Weapon’ as the wife to Damon Wayans, Sr. (Det. Murtaugh)! #Grateful #Blessed,” Sharp wrote on Twitter after being cast in the new role.
