Wilfred’s (FX, Thursdays, 10/9C) Jason Gann is the best kind of multi-hyphenate (actor-writer-executive producer-series co-creator) – he’s smart, funny, charming and open (though not to the extent of being overly spoilery).
Recently I – and a group of bloggers/journalists – had the opportunity to take part in a conference call Q&A with Gann. He spoke about creating the American version of the series, why he quit Twitter, and Elijah Wood’s putting on the dog suit and more.
What with July 4th being a Thursday this year, FX did not run a new episode of Wilfred this week. However, we do have a peek at next week’s new episode, Shame (guest-staring Wendy Schaal), after the jump. It looks just as delightfully surreal as ever.
In an attempt to further build on the success of its (very) original comedy, Wilfred, FX is scheduling a multi-platform launch for the show’s second season premiere for June 14th online and on Video on Demand, June 21st on FX, with an all-new episode debuting on June 28th in the show’s regular timeslot, Thursdays, 10:30/9:30C.
Details from the press release, including episode taglines, follow the jump.
This evening, Wilfred [FX, 10/9C] – about a suicidal ex-lawyer who sees the girl next door’s dog as a large Australian man in a cheesy dog suit – wraps up its first season with unexpected drama.
Elijah Wood and Jason Gann have a cable hit on their hands with Wilfred [FX, Thursdays, 10/9C], the heartwarming series about a lonely, unsettled ex-lawyer and the dog he sees as a hulking Australian man in a cheap dog suit – or rather, the ribald, rude series about an underachieving ex-lawyer who is manipulated by the selfish, arrogant titular hound [or maybe a bit of both…] – which concludes its critically acclaimed first season this week..
I recently had the opportunity to take part in a conference call Q&A with Wood and Gann, who spoke at length about the show’s successful first season and the first season finale.
FX has put together an hour of unstoppable comedy for Thursday nights in Wilfred [10/9C] and Louie [10:30/9:30C]. Wilfred revolves around a suicidal lost soul who sees his neighbor’s dog as a tall Australian man in a cheap dog suit, while Louie continues the ongoing saga of a divorced, middle-aged stand-up comic who has to be a part-time dad and deal with life as a recently single guy.
