Probably not - why? (And this just a whole lot of fitting the pieces together - meaning guessing on my part...)
OK - I believe Starsky and Hutch had 3 or 4 different themes - year one was by Mark Snow (very action cop show vibe) - year two was a whole shift in tome to this happy funk thing, which was written and performed by saxophonist Tom Scott.
Making this about 1976.
If it had been a year or two earlier - I would have guessed John Guerin (The two did LA Express together, the Joni Michell stuff)
But '76 was the year of the somewhat popular "Tom Scott - New York Connection" album - where LA mainstay Scott basically abandoned the LA Express thing to make a solo record with all of the new hip guys in New York. It featured the whole CTI Records crew - Richard Tee, Eric Gale, Gary King, Ralph McDonald and of course, Steve Gadd.
Which would be my guess, for sure. The timeline and circumstances make a lot of sense - and then when you listen to that "verse groove" with the anticipated "2" on the snare with the little 32nd note flurries before it - it really really sounds like Gadd. Specifically check out the section around :56.... Gadd, right?
And sure many folks might play that sort of thing now - but in '76? On a big TV theme written by the the guy you just made an album with??? Again just a big calculated guess - but it is probably Gadd.
We had a big thread on all of this a few years ago - and there was a great YouTube channel that had tons of great info on it - it is long gone sad to say - so here's a cut and paste of a post I made back then... (It actually lists Rick Marrota as drums on Starsky with Gadd on perc - which I don't buy - but interesting anyway)
In poking around google about this topic I stumbled on a handful of videos - just go to YouTube and search for "who played that theme" - which produced complete personnel listing for this giant list of themes. Many of the drummer credits were no surprise - but others were definitely more so.
