Los Angeles, Feb 19 (IANS) A female-led Starsky and Hutch reboot is in development.
The original action TV series aired between 1975 and 1979, and Fox is now working on a project that will feature two female characters in the title roles, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Michael Thorn, the president of Fox Entertainment, revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he wants to have at least two scripts from writers Sam Sklaver and Elizabeth Peterson before making any firm decisions about the production.
The re-imagining of the iconic TV series which starred Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul in the title roles, Starsky and Hutch will focus on two female detectives called Sasha Starsky and Nicole Hutchinson.
The duo will seek to solve crimes in Desert City, while theyll also try to discover who sent their dads to prison for a crime they didnt commit.
Meanwhile, Paul previously claimed that Starsky and Hutch belonged to a particular time and a period. The 79-year-old actor suggested that it would be difficult to ever replicate the feeling of the TV show.
When asked about the possibility of a reboot in 2018, he said: Starsky and Hutch, like most iconic shows, belongs to a time and a period and you wont be able to recreate that time or period, so youre left with realising a chemistry between two people. And thats of great value.
Its an example or a dynamic that we all like; we want to know a friend like that or function in the world like that. If they can find the right cast or figure out how to show it today, it can work well. Back in the 70s, people were more gullible and more accepting.
We only had three networks and up until that time, the police drama or the partnership in a police drama had not been explored that way. Now theyve done everything you could possibly do with (the genre). Whats left to explore except the always meaningful relationship of people with one another, and one to support one another.
