I can’t wait until March. No, not because of March Breakâ€”no holidays for meâ€”but because it means the debut of CBC’s newest comedy Little Dog.
Kicking off on Thursday, March 1, Little Dog is created by and stars Governor General Award-winning Joel Thomas Hynes asÂ Tommy â€œLittle Dogâ€ Ross, a boxer on the road to redemption. Five years ago, TommyÂ betrayed the boxerâ€™s code during a championship bout against Rico â€œHavocâ€ St. George (Dwain Murphy): he quit the fight, dumping a promising career down the drain. Tommy has had to live with the fallout of this decision ever since.
Additional cast in the seven episodes include Ger Ryan as Tommyâ€™s true nemesis and mother, Sylvia Ross; Stephen Oates as his eldest brother, Loyola â€œLowlyâ€ Ross Jr; Katharine Isabelle as his sister Ginny Ross; newcomer Billy Cochrane as Ginnyâ€™s son Chesley; and Andy Jones as the wily, charming old patriarch of the family, Loyola â€œLowlyâ€ Ross Sr.
Little Dog debutsÂ Thursday, March 1, at 9 p.m. on CBC.
