Cult Favorite Movies

ABC

The more recent Starsky & Hutch film with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson was based on the 1975 television series of the same name, but that television show was actually adapted from a seventy-minute TV movie. *That* movie was originally meant to be the series’s pilot, but it was so long that it became a stand-alone entry on Movie of the Week. Funnily enough, many of the scripts from Starsky & Hutch‘s first season were actually adapted from existing theatrical screenplays, meaning that film and television were as interchangeable for the original showrunners as the characters were for the 2004 film adaptation.
