The new TV show will turn the 1989 classic comedy into a 12-episode series on Disney+
Hug me, brotha! Josh Peck is returning to the small screen — this time with Disney+.
Peck shared the news to his followers with a simple,”👦🏻🐶” on Instagram.
Like the original film, the show follows main character Scott Turner, a U.S. marshall (unlike a police detective in the movie),who takes in a large dog that becomes his partner, according to Deadline.
Burn Notice’s Matt Nix is writing and executive producing the show with Josh Levy as a co-executive producer.
“Josh [Peck] has come up with a really cool idea — we’ve been talking,” he said. “So many things have to come together and actually happen to make that a reality.”
“At least it’s on the table,” he continued. “Now we’ve at least discussed the possibility of something happening.”
Peck’s last time on screen was in Fox sitcom Grandfathered opposite John Stamos. The show only lasted one season. Though he hasn’t had many main TV roles since his time on Nickelodeon, Peck has developed a large following on YouTube, where he boasts over 3.5 million subscribers. His most-viewed video has garnered nearly 15 million views.
He also hosts his own podcast Curious with Josh Peck.
