The big screen remake of the classic TV series CHiPs has released a funny new clip, starring Dax Shepard (Without a Paddle) & Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids).

Shepard also directs from a script he penned based on the characters from the popular ‘70s television series created by Rick Rosner.

Check out our review of CHiPs: Law & Disorder

Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Michael 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.

Also starring are Rosa Salazar (Insurgent), Adam Brody (The OC), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Jurassic World).

Andrew Panay (Earth to Echo), who produced Shepard’s directorial debut Hit and Run, is producing the film under his Panay Films banner, with Ravi Mehta (Get Hard). The executive producers are Robert J. Dohrmann, Nate Tuck, Rick Rosner, Michael Peña, and Dax Shepard.

Collaborating with Shepard behind the scenes are cinematographer Mitchell Amundsen (Now You See Me), production designer Maher Ahmad (Get Hard), editor Dan Lebental (Ant-Man) and costume designer Diane Crooke (TV’s Parenthood).

The original Chips TV series ran from 1977 to 1983 and starred 70s and 80s icon Erik Estrada as Officer Frank Poncherello and Larry Wilcox as Officer Jon Baker.

Robert Pine (father of Star Trek’s Chris Pine) appeared in the series as Sgt. Joseph Getraer along with series regulars Paul Linke, Brodie Greer and Randi Oakes.
