Adam Brody Joins Dax Shepard in Warner Bros.’ ‘CHiPs’ Film (EXCLUSIVE)

Adam Brody is set to join Dax Shepard and Michael Pena in Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the popular ’70s TV series “CHiPs.”

The TV series, which ran from 1977-83, featured two officers who patrolled the highways of California armed with motorcycles and the tightest khaki cop uniforms in television history.

Brody will play another officer on the force.

Jesse Ehrman and Nik Mavinkurve will oversee for the studio.
