Lyndsy Fonseca (Kick-Ass) and Carra Patterson (Straight Outta Compton) have joined the cast of the Disney+ series, Turner & Hooch alongside Josh Peck.
Peck plays U.S. Marshal Scott Turner, the character previously depicted by Tom Hanks (Toy Story) in the film. Like the film, the hourlong series centers around Scott Turner, who is currently a U.S. marshal (was a police detective in the film), and his canine. At the point when a goal-oriented, tied down U.S. marshal (Peck) acquires a major wild pooch, he before long understands the pet he didn’t need might be the accomplice he needs.
According to Deadline, Fonseca will play Laura, Scott Turner’s (Peck) sister and the mother of 7-year-old Matthew. Like the rest of her family, Laura is still coming to terms with the death of their father. A dog lover, who currently owns special needs dogs, Laura (with Matthew) brings over their father’s legacy to Scott, a huge slobbery dog named Hooch. Laura is close to both her brother and mother—with whom she discovers that their father’s death may not have been an accident.
Patterson will portray Jessica, Scott Turner’s (Peck) partner, and a sharp contrast to his spit-and-polish ways (which she constantly teases him about). Brave and quick-thinking on the job (though sometimes her sense of humor gets her in trouble), Jessica genuinely respects and supports Scott. Happily married to Grady, Jessica has no problem with Scott’s new sidekick, a slobbery dog named Hooch, and she’s willing to bring Hooch to work with them on a tough case.
Turner & Hooch series will kick off production on April 27th in Vancouver. The series is reportedly 10 episodes watching running an hour long. Burn Notice creator Matt Nix is developing the series with 20th Century Fox Television where he has an overall deal. Josh Levy (Bones) will co-produce with Nix.
Released in 1989, the original film was a box office hit grossing $71 million on a $13 million budget. The success all spawned an ABC half-hour pilot, produced by Touchstone TV and starring Thomas F. Wilson as Det. Scott Turner and Beasley the Dog reprising his role did not go to series but aired under the ABC’s Wonderful World of Disney banner in July 1990.
