Award-winning writer and producer Ken Finkleman (The Newsroom) returns to television in Good Dog, his highly anticipated new comedy. Starring Finkleman and Lauren Lee Smith (CSI; The L Word), the sharply ironic series focuses on the life of George, a self-absorbed, neurotic TV producer. After hooking up with Claire, a gorgeous model half his age, George negotiates his new reality dating a younger woman by pitching a reality show about his high concept, highly coveted, seriously volatile life. But when network executives insist that Claire move into his house, George is forced to escalate the relationship and consequently, his fears of commitment. When the pitch and his life go sideways, he frets, vents and reevaluates by soliciting questionable advice from his best friend Doug (Jason Weinberg).
George Findlay is a man in crisis. Just don't tell him that...he doesn't know it yet. Always up for a challenge, the extremely neurotic, significantly left-leaning George Findlay (Ken Finkleman) agrees to run the Canadian outpost of an American right-wing TV network owned by his socialite girlfriend's media baron father. George may not exactly think like a fundamentalist, but he'd like to think his worldview is fundamental.
