David Zuckerman could become our newest hero:

A good television show is, in many ways, like a real dog. Both require a lot of attention and love, and occasionally, despite their best intentions, they drop a deuce in your living room.
When I first laid eyes on the original Australian seriesWilfred, I loved co-creator Jason Gann‘s indelible performance as the title character, a man trapped in a dog’s body. But as funny and weird as the show was, it didn’t grab me on an emotional level. It wasn’t aboutanything, and at that point in my career I was looking to do something with more substance. Also, I’d already done two other shows with talking dogs and I didn’t want to look like a one-trick puppy.
