The Disney Channel is set to air their new series Dog with a Blog this October, according to the Examiner. In true Disney fashion, the program will follow the day-to-day adventures of a talking dog who also moonlights as a blogger. The family — including step-siblings Tyler, Avery and Chloe, and their parents Bennett and Ellen — is shocked to discover that the family pet is spilling their secrets on the internet. Depending on your sense of humor, hilarity should follow.
The official press release states that Dog with a Blog, which is centered around a blended family, is told from the canine’s point of view. As the family learns to adjust to their lifestyle, the dog — who goes by the name of Stan — shares his experiences with the world. It’s kind of like Doogie Howser, except without all of that pesky medical melodrama.
If you’re curious to know where this show is headed, the plot synopsis for the first episode should help shed some light on the matter:
“Bennett adopts a shelter dog in the hopes that it will inspire Tyler and Avery to get along and bond over taking care of him. That happens – to some extent – when the kids discover that their seemingly ordinary dog can talk. From that moment on, Tyler and Avery agree on one thing: Stan’s ability to speak must be kept a secret from everyone, even their parents. As the kids learn to work together to keep Stan’s secret safe, they soon find that his canine point of view, whether in the home, in the yard or in the park, helps them navigate their new sibling situation and, ultimately, becomes the tie that binds the family.”
According to Diszine, Dog with a Blog is currently scheduled to air on the Disney Channel on October 12. If the idea of a dog writing a blog sounds appealing to you, then be sure to tune in and check it out.
