DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, January 2017) Based on a web series, "Downward Dog" is about a struggling millennial, Nan (Allison Tolman), as observed from the point of view of her 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. While Martin lays around at home questioning the motives of the neighborhood cat and exercises newly acquired "superpowers" to open the doggie door with his mind, Nan spends her days at advertising agency Clark and Bow, struggling to prove herself to clients and senior management. Despite her boss Kevin's (Barry Rothbart) patronizing and demoralizing criticisms, Nan and her best friend and co-worker, Jenn (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), find creative ways to persevere. Because of Nan's long hours at work, she relies on ex-boyfriend Jason (Lucas Neff) to help take care of Martin. Jason's easy-going and sometimes unemployed lifestyle strengthens his friendship with Martin, but makes it difficult for Nan to move on. "Downward Dog" stars Allison Tolman (Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated, "Fargo") as Nan, Lucas Neff ("Raising Hope") as Jason, Kirby Howell-Baptiste ("Love") as Jenn, Barry Rothbart ("The Wolf of Wall Street") and co-creator Samm Hodges as the voice of Martin.
