The folks over at Disney+ seem bent on resurrecting as many dead IPs as possible for their new streaming service, and now it seems that Turner & Hooch is the next on the docket.
The original 1989 film starred Tom Hanks as a detective solving crimes with his dog. Not much is currently known about the new series and how it will adapt the original film into the new series, but Matt Nix (TV’s The Gifted and Burn Notice) will write and executive produce.
Personally, I feel like Turner & Hooch has a potential. It’s been a bit since I last caught the film, but it lies in that realm of recognizable IP that isn’t a holier-than-thou classic film. People don’t hold the film as perfect and untouchable, and I think, if done right, a series could work. It’s just a question of whether or not Disney and Fox know what to do with it.
So what do you think? Can a Turner & Hooch survive over at Disney+? Let me know/Drop a comment down below!
