Turner and Hooch was a classic 1980s comedy film, and Disney+ has decided to reboot the story into a TV series. Turner and Hooch debuted in July 2021, and stars Josh Peck as Scott Turner Jr, the son of the main character from the original film. The story follows Scott and his French Mastiff, Hooch, as they solve crimes around the city. While the story takes place in San Francisco, filming was based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
US Marshall’s Office
The US Marshall’s Office exterior is seen in every episode. Through CGI, it appears to have the San Francisco skyline behind it. However the actual building is the Surrey City Hall, in Surrey, British Columbia. The large plaza makes it an ideal location for filming.
In addition to the main building, several episodes feature a number of police vehicles departing the parking garage, which is located just to the right of the building.
The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
In the episode “A Good Day To Dog Hard”, most of the story takes place in a luxury hotel. Establishing shots feature The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, one of the cities oldest and most iconic hotels.
The Pacific Central Train Station
Although the Fairmont Hotel was used for long shots, all the street level shots were actually filmed at Vancouver’s main train depot, the Pacific Central Station. Here you can catch trains on both Via Rail and Amtrak.
City Centre Motor Hotel
The pilot episode featured Turner and his partner Jessica visit a local motel to investigate their case. These scenes were filmed at Vancouver’s City Centre Motor Hotel. This motel is located close to downtown, and has been seen in a number of other productions, including Riverdale.
Filming took place in the parking lot as well as room 128.
The Painted Ladies
While filming was based in Vancouver, the pilot does feature one brief shot filmed in San Francisco. Turner drives his car past the famous Painted Ladies row of houses, right across from Alamo Square Park. This location is also well known for appearing in the opening credits of Full House.
