You’d be hard-pressed to find a dog-lover that doesn’t fondly remember 1989 buddy cop movie, Turner & Hooch. The film starred actor Tom Hanks and a Dogue de Bordeaux (French Mastiff) named Beasley as a particularly drooly crime-solving duo of detectives.
Now, fans of the film can once again enjoy animal antics, drool-worthy detective work, and endearing moments between man and man’s best friend in the new Disney+ series, Turner & Hooch!
When an ambitious, buttoned-up US Marshal inherits a big unruly dog, he soon realizes the dog he didn’t want may be the partner he needs. Turner & Hooch stars Josh Peck as Scott Turner (the son of Detective Scott Turner portrayed by Tom Hanks in the 1989 film). Five different Dogue de Bordeaux actors take on the role of Hooch in the series.
And, like the favorite film, the slobbering sleuth still manages to get himself into a bit of trouble. Check out this exclusive clip from the new episode!
The series is now streaming on Disney+, with new episodes premiering weekly.
In addition to Josh Peck and his five canine co-stars, the series also stars Carra Patterson, Brandon Jay McLaren, Anthony Ruivivar, Lyndsy Fonseca, Jeremy Maguire, and Vanessa Lengies.
