Josh Peck (“Drake & Josh,” “Grandfathered”) has been set to star in “Turner & Hooch,” the hour-long series remake of the Tom Hanks-led 1989 Disney family comedy, which is in the works at Disney+.
Peck will play Scott Turner, described as an ambitious, buttoned-up U.S. Marshall who inherits a big unruly dog. He soon realizes the pet he didn’t want may be the partner he needs.
Twelve episodes of the series have been ordered with former “Burn Notice” creator Matt Nix writing and executive producing. Josh Levy is co-executive producing.
Roger Spottiswoode helmed the original which also starred Mare Winningham, Craig T. Nelson, and Reginald VelJohnson. It grossed over $70 million at the box office on a reported budget of $13 million.
