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

Finkleman Shines Again
3 February 2019 | by jgoodhandSee all my reviews

I thought this was a really funny and unique show. It is in a way a good thing it didn't go on longer than it did because it is just a nice little slice of life with interesting characters, good writing and some funny jokes and bittersweet moments. We enjoyed this series quite a bit. Not as good as Newsroom was back in the day but still good.
