I can’t wait until March. No, not because of March Break—no holidays for me—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 as Tommy “Little Dog” Ross, a boxer on the road to redemption. Five years ago, Tommy betrayed the boxer’s code during a championship bout against Rico “Havoc” 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 Tommy’s true nemesis and mother, Sylvia Ross; Stephen Oates as his eldest brother, Loyola “Lowly” Ross Jr; Katharine Isabelle as his sister Ginny Ross; newcomer Billy Cochrane as Ginny’s son Chesley; and Andy Jones as the wily, charming old patriarch of the family, Loyola “Lowly” Ross Sr.

Little Dog debuts Thursday, March 1, at 9 p.m. on CBC.
