Starsky and Hutch launched on ABC in 1975 as a movie-of-the-week starring Paul Michael Glaser as David Michael Starsky and David Soul as Kenneth "Hutch" Hutchinson. It then continued on as a series, which ran for four seasons and almost 100 episodes. The series was rebooted as a film in 2004 with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in the titular roles.

Gunn, his brother and cousin will executive produce the series along with Sony's Neal Moritz and Pavun Shetty.

Sony has not yet found a network for the reboot, though Paramount network has allegedly passed on the package.
