Brief history/biography

Starsky and Hutch is an American-based cop thriller television series which broadcasted between 1975 and 1979 on ABC. The series consisted of a 90-minute pilot movie and eventually went on to air 92 60-minute episodes. The television series was created by William Blinn and produced by Spelling-Goldberg Productions, and starred Paul Michael Glaser as David Michael Starsky and David Soul as Kenneth "Hutch" Hutchinson.

1974 to 1976 Ford Torinos were consistently used throughout the series as stunt cars for numerous different "beauty" shots. Various different toy models of the Ford Torinos have been released since the series first aired in the 1970s, and a Starsky and Hutch video game was released in 2003 by Mind's Eye as well.

In 2004, a Starsky and Hutch film was released and starred Ben Stiller as David Starsky and Owen Wilson as Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson. Other actors/actresses who appeared in the film include Vince Vaughn, Will Ferrell, Juliette Lewis, Carmen Electra, and many more.
