Wilmer Valderrama is going to the dogs.

The former star of That ’70s Show will star in a half-hour sitcom based on the escapades of Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan now being developed for FOX, reports Variety.

Cesar’s Way author Millan, who has re-trained some of the worst-behaved dogs ever to appear onscreen, has been involved in many, er, hairy adventures that will presumably be fodder for the new show.

While details of the project remain sketchy, the trade paper says Hung co-executive producer Emily Kapnek is onboard to write and executive produce, and both Valderrama, 29, and Millan, 40, also will have non-acting credits on the show.

Besides the nostalgic FOX sitcom that made him a star, Valderrama recently voiced the Disney Channel’s Handy Manny and has appeared in the movies The Dry Land, Fast Food Nation and Unaccompanied Minors.
