‘Downward Dog’ Episode Guide (June 27): Nan Visits Her Estranged Father’s Place

“Getting What You Always Wanted” (06/27/17; 10:00-10:30PM) – Nan’s long-anticipated national campaign is hours away from launching in Times Square on the Jumbotron, when an overwrought Nan discovers an algorithm has been flipped, and instead of blocking penis photos from the photo feed it will choose them, which could torpedo the whole campaign.

Meanwhile, Martin decides to reduce Nan’s stress by taking out his sworn enemy, Pepper, to unexpected results, on “Downward Dog,” TUESDAY, JUNE 27 (10:01-10:30 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

“Getting Lost” Season 1 Finale/Series Finale (06/27/17; 10:30-11:00PM) – To take a break from the pressures of a major decision at work and the mess she’s made of her life, Nan decides to take a vacation. On the way, she stops by her estranged father’s place in the country, hoping to say hi and go. Instead, she discovers he’s selling the family home.

While Nan tries to pack up some childhood treasures, Dad takes Martin for a walk – but Martin, runs off into the woods, hoping to prove he’s wild and free like a wolf. Instead, he discovers he’s not a wolf – he’s a dog who’s lost on “Downward Dog,” TUESDAY, JUNE 27 (10:30-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in “Getting What You Always Wanted” are Maria Bamford as Pepper, Ayden Mayeri as Gwen, Michelle Veintimilla as Sam, Siovhan Christensen as Keira and Ned as Martin.

Guest starring in “Getting Lost” are Louis Herthum as Wade, Ayden Mayeri as Gwen and Ned as Martin.

“Getting What You Always Wanted” is written by Laura Kittrell and directed by Paul Murphy.

“Getting Lost” was written by Kat Likkel and John Hoberg and directed by Michael Killen.

Based on a web series, “Downward Dog” 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).

Nan attempts to juggle her tumultuous personal life with a stressful career, unjustly supervised by her self-obsessed boss. Having her story told from the canine perspective provides a uniquely unfiltered point of view that helps us laugh and cry about what it means to be a human being in the twenty-first century. It’s a show about a dog and the girl he adores, and even at their worst, Nan and Martin just might be best for one another.

“Downward Dog” stars Allison Tolman as Nan, Lucas Neff (“Raising Hope”) as Jason, Nan’s ex-boyfriend; Kirby Howell-Baptiste (“Love”) as Jenn, Nan’s best friend and co-worker; and Barry Rothbart (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) as Kevin, Nan’s boss.

“Downward Dog” series creators Michael Killen and Samm Hodges executive produce with Mosaic’s Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen, and Animal Media’s Kathy Dzubiek. Showrunners Kat Likkel and John Hoberg also executive produce. The series is produced by Legendary Television and ABC Studios.
