Ponch and Baker are back!
The first trailer for "CHIPs", which you can see above and is a big screen adaptation of the popular NBC series that premiered in 1977, debuted Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Now patrolling the California highways are Dax Shepard and Michael Peña, taking on the roles of Jon Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncharello, originated by Larry Wilcox and Erik Estrada, respectively.
Dax Shephard also wrote and directed the movie, which will co-star his real-life wife Kristen Bell.
The movie looks like a more R-rated, comedic, and action-packed version of the show.
Ponch (Peña) is a federal agent tasked with going undercover in the California Highway Patrol to investigate whether a recent heist was an inside job. Not making his mission any easier is Baker (Shepard), a retired X-Games biker who only joined the CHP to save his marriage.
