Backseat Barkers is a comedy video series in development under the Talent Hounds Pet umbrella. It follows a young millennial couple Sophie and Hugh and their two polar opposite pets, a greedy rescue Pug, and an athletic well-trained Border Collie (The Odd couple). The show follows this new blended family as the embark on a road trip across Ontario.
Inspired by modern relationships, rescues and traveling with dogs, Backseat Barkers is built around the comedic tension between the ensemble cast including the talking dogs (we hear their thoughts). Sophie and Hugh are madly in love and ready to compromise. The dogs, not so much.
The show also highlights different dog breed traits, promotes research before getting a pet, promotes Ontario attractions, adoption and tips when traveling with pets.
