Based on the web series, Downward Dog is about a struggling millennial, Nan, from the point of view of her lonely and philosophical dog, Martin. One session at obedience school already makes them realize that even at their worst they may be the best thing for each other. The series stars Allison Tolman as Nan, Lucas Neff as Jason, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Jenn, Barry Rothbart as Kevin and Mo Collins as Kim. Samm Hodges is the voice of Martin.
Downward Dog creators/writers Samm Hodges and Michael Killen executive produce with Mosaic Media Group’s Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen, and Animal’s Kathy Dziubek. Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky were executive producers of the pilot. The series is from Legendary Television and ABC Studios.
According to the statement, ABC will air the last two episodes of season one on Tuesday night and Hodges asks that fans watch. Many other shows have gone on to find new homes on streaming services or cable networks, so it’s a possibility if it can be worked out financially and the audience is there. The show began with positive ratings, but they’ve declined over the season on the network.
