Storyline

Award-winning writer and producer Ken Finkleman (The Newsroom) returns to television in Good Dog, his highly anticipated new comedy produced by Shaftesbury in association with Astral's The Movie Network and Corus Entertainment's Movie Central. 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). Finkleman is renowned as the writer, creator and producer of the CBC/PBS series ... Written by Shaftesbury Films

I am SO glad to have discovered this Show
18 September 2012 | by (GTA) – See all my reviews

I Just happened upon this series this weekend and loved it. (Maybe I am in the right age group - 50's) i wait with bated breathe for season 2. please tell me there will be a season two, or another "Good ______" season.

I just watched the final episodes last night. I guess it helps that I recognize many of the Toronto areas that they film in. I walk down Queen Street west with a new eye, given that they make the area look better than it does in real life. The growing number of shows based and show casing Toronto brings the entertainment home in a way that I as a common citizen can enjoy.

Everything is so tongue in cheek. Ken F is funnier than Sienfeld (not hard) and Larry David - and there is a bit (only a bit) of humbleness to his character as he fumbles through life. This is entertainment that I would pay for, and I do!
