Looks like a ‘That 70′s Show‘ alum is snagging a new gig – as a dog trainer.

A very famous dog trainer.

Wilmer Valderrama has signed on to do a sitcom based on the life of Cesar Millan, the star of National Geographic channel’s ‘Dog Whisperer,’ Variety reports.

Valderrama, the funny foreign exchange student Fez on ‘That 70′s Show,’ will play a man who created an empire based on his impressive dog training skills.

The series will be produced by ‘Hung’ co-executive producer Emily Kapnek and will air on Fox.

Since his days as Fez, Valderrama developed the children’s TV series, ‘Handy Manny’ for Disney, and has starred in the films ‘The Dry Land,’ ‘Fast Food Nation’ and ‘Unaccompanied Minors.’
