Disney is releasing a brand new “Turner & Hooch” live-action series on Disney+ in July and Deadline has announced that Reginald VelJohnson, will reprise his role as David Sutton.
The actor played the character in the original 1989 film, which is available now on Disney+.
In the new series, David Sutton is now the mayor of Cypress Beach and is a close family friend to his old partner’s kids, Scott (Peck) and Laura (Lyndsy Fonseca).
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, son of Detective Scott Turner portrayed by Tom Hanks in the 1989 film of the same name.
There is little that happens in Cypress Beach that Mayor Sutton doesn’t know about and when Scott and Laura begin investigating one of their father’s old cases, it’s only a matter of time until David’s involved.
The actor has also previously starred in Avengers: Endgame, Die Hard, Station 19, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Hart of Dixie and Ray Donovan.
The series also stars Carra Patterson as Jessica Baxter, Scott’s brave, street-smart partner; Brandon Jay McLaren as Xavier Wilson, a cool, enigmatic marine-turned-US Marshal; Anthony Ruivivar as Chief James Mendez, Scott’s boss with a secret soft spot for Scott’s new dog, Hooch; Lyndsy Fonseca as Laura Turner, Scott’s sweet, animal-loving sister; Jeremy Maguire as Matthew Garland, Laura’s dog-loving son; and Vanessa Lengies as Erica Mouniere, the quirky head of the US Marshals dog training program. Five French Mastiffs also star as Hooch, Scott’s slobbery, loveable French Mastiff.
“Turner & Hooch” is a Disney+ original series produced by 20th Television. Matt Nix is creator, executive producer and writer on the series. McG is an executive producer and directed the series premiere. Michael Horowitz, Robert Duncan McNeill and Mary Viola also serve as executive producers, and Josh Levy serves as co-executive producer.
