Josh Peck, once the child actor on Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh and more recently starred in the indie drama Locating Silver Lake, will star in the 12-episode hourlong series as Scott Turner, the character Hanks played in the original 1989 comedy.

In the original movie, Scott was a police detective who inherited his friend's dog Hooch after he was murdered. Comedy follows as Scott attempts to adjust to life with a giant, unruly dog, but the pet becomes the best assistant in solving his friend's case. In the new Disney+ series, Scott is described as `an ambitious, buttoned-up U.S. Marshall` who, once again, inherits the dog.

The creator behind Burn Notice, Matt Nix, will write and executive produce the new Turner & Hooch reboot. Josh Levy from Bones will act as a co-executive producer.
