DOWNWARD DOG

ABC SERIES

 
Synopsis

Based on a web series, Downward Dog follows the day-to-day life of Nan (Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated Allison Tolman, Fargo), as told by her increasingly lonely and philosophical dog, Martin (voiced by Samm Hodges). Just one session at obedience school makes them realize that even at their worst, they may be the best thing for each other.

Nan attempts to juggle her tumultuous personal life with a stressful career, unjustly supervised by her self-obsessed boss. Having her story told from the canine perspective provides a uniquely unfiltered point of view that helps us laugh and cry about what it means to be a human being in the twenty-first century. It's a show about a dog and the girl he adores, and even at their worst, Nan and Martin just might be best for one another.

Downward Dog stars Allison Tolman as Nan, Lucas Neff (Raising Hope) as Jason, Nan's ex-boyfriend; Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Love) as Jenn, Nan's best friend and co-worker; and Barry Rothbart (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Kevin, Nan's boss.
