Debuting last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the trailer for a new comedy starring Dax Shepard and Michael Peña based on the popular television series of the same name which ran from 1977-1983.
Official Synopsis: 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.
Written and Directed by: Dax Shepard
Starring: Dax Shepard, Michael Peña, Kristen Bell, Maya Rudolph, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jessica McNamee, Adam Brody, and Ryan Hansen.
Release Date: March 24th.
