Downward Dog premieres on ABC
Anticipated date: Early 2017
Also filmed on location in Pittsburgh, the sitcom Downward Dog, starring Fargo’s Allison Tolman, hits ABC in early 2017. The show follows Martin, a bored, introspective dog, and his owner Nan (Tolman) as they navigate through relationships and life. Think Marley & Me, but Marley talks to the camera in a Modern Family-style confessional and the dog doesn't die in the end (we speculate). Pittsburgh’s Animal Inc. studio began Downward Dog as a web series, using special talking-animal technology (the same used on the chihuahua in Taco Bell ads) to achieve Martin's jowl blabbering speech movements.
