New online reports indicate the upcoming Tuner & Hooch reboot series for Disney+ will begin filming soon. Production is said to be well into the preparation phase and the twelve-episode, hourlong series is set to begin filming on September 22 in Vancouver, Canada and is expected to wrap in early April 2021.
The TV series, which is based off the 1989 movie, centers around Scott Turner, who is a U.S. Marshall (he was a police detective in the film), and his slobbery dog. When an ambitious, buttoned-up U.S. marshal inherits a big unruly dog, he soon realizes the pet he didn’t want may be the partner he needs.
The series will star Josh Peck (Drake and Josh) as Scott Turner, Vanessa Lengies (Glee) as Erica, who is the chief trainer at the U.S. Marshal K-9 facility, Lyndsy Fonseca (Kick-Ass), who plays Laura, Scott Turner’s sister and the mother of 7-year-old Matthew, and Carra Patterson (Straight Outta Compton), Turner’s partner.
McG was recently confirmed to direct at least one episode of the series. McG’s past directing credits include hit series Lethal Weapon and Chuck. He has also worked on many films including Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Terminator Salvation and We Are Marshall.
Matt Nix (Burn Notice) is writing and executive producing the series, with Josh Levy co-executive producing.
A release date has not been set for the new series, but you can currently stream the original Turner & Hooch film on Disney+.
