Quick Thoughts: I’m so weirdly, uncontrollably hyped for this. I can’t help it. I love the cast. I’m a sucker for anything with Out of Sight/The Catch vibes. By the way, y’all need to go back and watch The Catch, the weirdest thing to ever come out of Shondaland. There’s just something about John Simm basically playing The Master but if The Master were Gina Torres’ pansexual best friend. What was I talking about? Oh right. This show. I’m going to be genuinely sad if this isn’t good.

The series follows a group of local Animal Control workers whose lives are complicated by the fact that animals are simple, but humans are not. McHale will portray Frank, an opinionated, eccentric Animal Control officer who may not have gone to college but is still the most well-read person in the room. A former cop, Frank tried to expose corruption in his department, but his efforts got him fired, which may explain why he’s so cynical and curmudgeonly. He has an almost superhuman ability to understand animals. Humans…not so much.
