Disney+ has order a series adaptation of its 1989 buddy cop flick, Turner & Hooch.
The film starred a young Tom Hanks as U.S. Marshal Scott Turner and his slobbering French mastiff, Beasley the Dog.
Josh Peck (Drake & Josh, Grandfathered, Ice Age) has now been cast in the Hanks role. Like the movie, the series revolves around a U.S. marshal who inherits a big unruly dog, and soon realises the pet he didn’t want may be the partner he needs.
The series from Matt Nix (Burn Notice) has a 12 episode order.
This is not the first attempt to mount a Turner & Hooch series. A 1990 half-hour pilot, produced by Touchstone TV and starring Thomas F. Wilson and Beasley the Dog reprising his role, did not go to series.
