Colin Hanks revs up for ‘Jack and Dan’

Colin Hanks is set to topline “Jack and Dan,” Matt Nix’s new 13-episode hourlong series for Fox.

The straight-to-series project, which also stars Bradley Whitford, is produced by Fox TV Studios under the company’s international co-production model.

It centers on Jack (Hanks), an ambitious, by-the-book detective whose habit of undermining himself has resulted in a dead-end position at the Los Angeles Police Department. Worse, he has been partnered with Dan (Whitford), a drunken, lecherous, wild-card cop who hangs onto his job only because of a heroic act years before.

Filming on the show, an action comedy in the tone of Nix’s USA Network series “Burn Notice,” is slated to begin early next year.

Hanks, who began as a regular on WB Network’s sci-fi drama “Roswell,” recently did an arc on AMC’s “Mad Men.” His feature credits include comedy “The House Bunny,” “Untraceable” and “The Great Buck Howard.”

I love Colin Hanks, but I’m so sick of detective shows! Hopefully this one will be different!
