Fox is developing a female-focused remake of the 1970s buddy cop series Starsky & Hutch because why not.
According to Deadline, Fox is developing the project as a one-hour drama under its script-to-series model.
Two female detectives are the feature of this modern reimagining, Sasha Starsky and Nicole Hutchinson. The duo solve crimes in the offbeat town of Desert City while staying true to their friendship and awesomeness and somehow trying to unravel the mystery behind who sent their fathers to prison 15 years ago for a crime they didn’t commit.
Spelling-Goldberg Productions produced the original series, which ran on ABC from 1975-1979, which William Blinn created. In their two-door Ford Gran Torino, two detectives — the streetwise David Michael Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) and the by-the-book Kenneth Richard “Hutch” Hutchinson (David Soul) — traverse the streets of fictional Bay City, California. Sony TV, then known as Columbia Pictures Television, was behind the original series.
