‘Downward Dog’ Episode Guide (June 20): A Puppy Moves In for the Weekend

“Old” (06/20/17) – On his seventh birthday, all Martin wants is a nap, but his world is rocked when Jenn crashes at Nan’s house for a few days with her new puppy. Meanwhile, Jenn and Nan try to forget their respective romantic dramas by hitting the town, finding inspiration when they hear local celebrity Deejay Devine sing, on “Downward Dog,” TUESDAY, JUNE 20 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Maria Bamford as Pepper, Louis Herthum as Wade, Nichelle Nichols as Deejay Devine, Ned as Martin and Mr. Likkel as Puppy.

“Old” is written by Annabell Oaks and directed by Paul Murphy.

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.
