The classic buddy cop series that laid down the framework for those to come Starsky & Hutch could be rebooted by Sony TV.

James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) is being touted as a potential writer for the show along with his brothers with whom he has previously collaborated. The original Starsky & Hutch centered on two detectives, the streetwise David Michael Starsky (played by Paul Michael Glaser) and the by-the-book Kenneth Richard “Hutch” Hutchinson (David Soul), traversing the streets of the fictional Bay City, California in a two-door Ford Gran Torino.

Could this revival have something to do with the success of the Lethal Weapon TV adaption that has been renewed for a second season?
