Disney+ Developing Turner & Hooch TV Show
Turner & Hooch might be adapted to a TV show if Disney+ gets their way. The 1989 movie starred Tom Hanks as an obsessive-compulsive police detective. While investigating a murder, he is forced to take care of the witness — a dog — and unlikely bond and partnership grows. At least, when the main character got over all the endless drooling coming from the canine. Find out what is known about the reboot so far.
TV Reboot News – About the Turner & Hooch Reboot
According to Deadline, Disney+ is hoping to turn Turner & Hooch into a series. Matt Nix is the writer, who was part of Burn Notice and The Gifted. He will also be serving as executive producer. We don’t really know much information about the proposed TV show. The media outlet did have this to say though:
“… it is believed to be keeping the premise of the original movie, which starred Tom Hanks, and also revolves around a police detective and his dog, I hear. The TV series had been in the works for awhile. It has been gathering momentum recently, and I hear it is heating up for a green light. Reps for Disney+ and 20th TV would not comment.”
One thing is for sure, the film was a big success and people still enjoy watching it. In fact, it earned $71 million with a budget of $13 million. Let’s hope the TV show is just as good.
