Wilmer Valderrama is about to become top dog over at FOX. The network has tapped the That '70s Show star to play the lead role in a comedy they’re developing based on dog trainer Cesar Millan of Dog Whisperer fame, Variety reports.
The sitcom will center around Milan’s wacky adventures taming naughty pups, although show details are still being worked out. Hung co-exec producer Emily Kapnek will write and exec produce the half-hour comedy. Kapnek also wrote the Fox pilot The Emancipation of Ernesto last year for Valderrama, but the show wasn’t picked up.
Milan, author Cesar's Way, has built a dog training empire and is known for working with celebrities, including Will Smith and Oprah Winfrey.
