“CHiPs” Joins The Latest 70s TV Revival Unto Film

"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."

Dax Shepard (“Hit and Run,” TV’s “Parenthood”) and Michael Peña (“The Martian”) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ action comedy “CHiPs.” Based on the characters from the popular ‘70s television series created by Rick Rosner, Shepard also wrote the script and does directing duties for this revival/reboot - featuring dick-jokes nd a general haha-very reminiscent of “21st Jump Street” - which I enjoyed! LOL

The film also stars Rosa Salazar (“Insurgent”), Adam Brody (“Think Like a Man Too”), Kristen Bell (“Veronica Mars” - Dax’s wife), and Vincent D’Onofrio (“Jurassic World”).

CHiPS premieres March 24, 2017, in the USA. The trailer was premiered on Kimmy Kimmel Live, after an elaborate-ish opening, seen on the video below.
