About Starsky and Hutch
Crime bustin’s a joint effort
12:00 PM – 01:00 PM
In the mid-1970s, Starsky & Hutch reinvigorated the police show genre -adding youth, energy, and friendship – and in the process became one of the most memorable buddy cop teams in entertainment history. This American cop thriller will be making its way into the retro slot at 12:00pm from 18 December, 2015 on SABC3.
Starsky & Hutch is a one-hour action crime drama series from producers Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg.
This notorious series sees a pair of dedicated undercover cops use their street smarts and a network of unusual friends as they work the toughest beats in their home of Bay City, California.
Despite their differences, the streetwise Brooklyn transplant Dave Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) and his soft-spoken, intellectual partner Ken Hutchinson (David Soul) are the perfect undercover team for Bay City’s toughest beats.
With help from their jive-talking informant Huggy Bear (Antonio Fargas), their boss Captain Harold Dobey and a souped-up red 1974 Ford Torino they work the roughest beat in town.
Relying on their very different perspectives in their pursuit to clean up Bay City’s crime-infested streets, Starsky & Hutch go undercover with a wink and a smile to take on powerful racketeers, big time drug dealers and low life addicts, prostitutes and pimps, cold blooded assassins and cop killers, powerful racists and even down-on-their-luck average Joes forced into crime just to make ends meet.
The duo always avoids boring police attire and instead favors the stylish fashions of the swinging bachelors they are. But it isn’t all fun and games, as Starsky and Hutch put their lives on the line.
Find all the action and drama in Starsky & Hutch airing on SABC3 on Fridays at 12.00pm from 18 December 2015.
