Take Off Your Mirror Shades And Watch The First CHIPS Trailer

The '70s cop show gets a comic reboot.






Baywatch isn't the only past TV show receiving a Starsky & Hutch style comic big screen reboot in 2017. CHiPs, the cult cop show that ran from 1977 to 1983, is hitting cinemas this year with Dax Shepard (who also writes and directs) and Michael Pena in the iconic roles of Baker and Ponch.

CHiPs will be in UK/ROI cinemas 24th of March



The official synopsis reads:

Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Peña) have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles but for very different reasons.  Baker is a beaten up pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together.  Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job—inside the CHP.

The inexperienced rookie and hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kickstarting a partnership is easier said than done.  But with Baker’s bike skills combined with Ponch’s street savvy it might just work…if they don’t drive each other crazy along the way.

Also starring are Rosa Salazar (“Insurgent”), Adam Brody (“Think Like a Man Too”), Kristen Bell (“Veronica Mars”), and Vincent D’Onofrio (“Jurassic World”).
