Shout! Factory TV will partner with social video platform Twitch to host a marathon of the cult hit series Street Hawk on June 2. Fans can watch all 13 episodes from the show’s original run with Street Hawk: The Man…The Machine…The Marathon, complete with an unaired pilot and bonus content including documentary footage from The Making of a Legend. The mission begins Saturday, June 2nd at 6 p.m. PT on Shout! Factory’s official Twitch channel.
When motorcycle cop Jesse Mach is injured in the line of duty after an assault by an old enemy, his time doing field duty seems finished. He is then recruited for a top-secret government mission to be the test pilot for Street Hawk, an all-terrain attack motorcycle designed with immense firepower and capable of incredible speeds of up to 300 mph. Beyond carrying out his test pilot duties, Mach insists on fighting urban crime and leads a double life as police public relations officer by day and crimefighting vigilante by night as the mysterious superhero known as Street Hawk. Only one man, federal agent Norman Tuttle, knows Jesse Mach’s true identity. The Man…The Machine…Street Hawk.
Broadcast by ABC in 1985, Street Hawk quickly became a hit. Starring Rex Smith (Solid Gold) as Jesse Mach and Joe Regalbuto (Murphy Brown) as Norman Tuttle, the show also features an all-star list of guest stars, including George Clooney (ER, Up in the Air) as Jesse Mach’s old friend who has been hired as a hitman to take him out, Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) as the villain in the pilot episode and Bianca Jagger (The Cannonball Run).
All episodes of Street Hawk are also available on VOD at Shout! Factory TV.
