DOWNWARD DOG Preview: First Look at ABC’s New Animal Comedy Series

NED, ALLISON TOLMAN

Based on the web series of the same name, DOWNWARD DOG is about a struggling millennial, Nan, from the point of view of her lonely and philosophical dog, Martin.

With Nan no longer giving Martin the attention he needs, he’s taken to destroying her favorite boots. After she broke up with her boyfriend, she spends way too much time at work trying to impress her boss and co-workers, leaving Martin all alone. At work, Nan just wants to get ahead and as soon as she starts to make some headway, Martin ruins everything. Is she really going to have to tell everyone at work that her dog ate her presentation? Ergo, it’s time for obedience school for Martin.
