Starsky & Hutch Coming to Marina del Rey

Fans will be able to meet actors and bid on TV show memorabilia.

Actors David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser, co-stars of the 1970s television show “Starsky & Hutch” will be the guests of honor at a fan-based gathering in Marina del Rey on April 6, 2013.

The event dubbed “SurCon” will include a three-course dinner with the actors, a silent auction of show memorabilia, a meet-and-greet cocktail hour and viewing of Starsky & Hutch episode “Survival” followed by a question and answer session with the actors.

Fans will have a chance to bid on a ride in a replicated Ford Gran Torino from the show driven by Glaser and Soul. Jay Leno’s announcer Wally Wingret, who is a fan of the show, will provide the vehicle. Another item up for auction is a private breakfast with the actors at Primitivo in Venice, that is located in the building used on the show as Hutch’s apartment.

Soul, who played Hutch, currently lives in London and has been an actor for four decades. Recently, he appeared alongside actress Jerry Hall at the Gaiety Theater in Dublin, Ireland, in A.R. Gurney's play, “Love Letters.”

Glaser, has appeared in the Jack Nicholson movie “Something’s Gotta Give” and Running Man” with Arnold Schwarzenegger. He is also a children’s book author and recently published “Chrystallia and the Source of Light.”

Tickets are on sale now online at SurCon or by calling co-producer Carolyn Peterson at (949) 439-9504.

The original TV series was partiy "FILMED" in Venice, CA. { I did not want to use the word = "SHOT." } One of the characters ( can't remember if it was Starsky or Hutch ) lived in a tiny, little, cottage, house on the Venice Canals. An old joke -- "back in the Day": some folks called them "Husky and Starch." ;-) Unfortunately, Paul Michael Glaser committed Suicide. While the TV show was still going strong -- I think ... :-(

Oooops ! Forgive me. ( obviously I didn't READ the article First .) ==> NOT Wise. Paul Michael Glaser was *NOT* the actor who committed Suicide. It was the "cute" guy Actor on the TV show, "Alias SMITH and JONES."

Margaret, they starred in the series "Starsky and Hutch" from 1975 to 1979. It was the hottest show on TV. They have a huge fan following still today.
