Turner & Hooch was an iconic movie of it’s time which touched the hearts of millions. It added another gem in Tom Hanks’ ever growing kitty. The movie was adorable to say the least. It focused on the relationship between Turner an orderly cop and Hooch a dog who recently lost its owner, was a witness to his murder and us pretty set in his ways.
Now with the amount of reboots and sequels Disney+ has been churning and the reports that were coming in regards to it. It wasn’t really a surprise that the streaming device went forward with a television series based on Turner & Hooch. But not only did they confirmed it, but also gave it a 12 episode order of 1 hour each with Josh Peck as the lead. Ok I love me some Josh but I would have liked the dog’s photo.
The Gifted game Matt Nix will write and be the executive producer of the series with Josh Levy (Bones) acting as co-executive producer.
The film originally co starred Mare Winningham, Craig T. Nelson and Reginald VelJohnson. It was directed by Roger Spottiswoode. It was hugely successful gaining 71 million dollars in the box office.
NBC tried to make a TV series out of it, with Thomas F. Wilson (Back to the Future) attached to it. They created a pilot but it didn’t work out.
There is no release date yet for the series.
Disney+ already has signed up 28 million subscribers since launching in November. It is mainly because of various properties like High school musical and The Mandalorian. Other upcoming series includes The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Wanda Vision, both due out on the streaming service later this year alongside the second season of Star Wars series The Mandalorian, Disney is now in production on Loki and is now developing Marvel series Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Moon Knight.
