Starsky and Hutchinson will be "trying to unravel the mystery behind who sent their fathers to prison 15 years ago for a crime they didn’t commit".

The original series, which ran from 1975-79 on ABC, starred David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser in the title roles and Antonio Fargas as Huggy Bear, the two detectives' informant.

William Blinn was its original brains, and the show featured its iconic cherry-red Ford Gran Torino with a white stripe across its sides and roof.

It is hoped the classic car will make a return for its all-female return.

The news comes after original series star David admitted that he actually wanted to switch roles with his co-star Michael, hoping to portray Starsky and not Hutch.

"When [Paul] walked into the audition of Starsky & Hutch, was I Hutch? I wanted the other part as I thought mine was pretty boring," he admitted while appearing on ITV's This Morning.

David explained at the time: "I told the producers, but they said no you're blonde and he’s the curly-haired one so it needs to be this way."
