Downward Dog has arrived. This week. ABC released the first episode of the new TV series online.
Based on the web series of the same name, the comedy “follows the day-to-day life of Nan (Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated Allison Tolman, “Fargo”), as told by her increasingly lonely and philosophical dog, Martin (voiced by Samm Hodges).”
