CBS going to ‘Dogs’

Unscripted skein to premiere May 30

CBS will debut new unscripted series “Dogs in the City” May 30 in the 8 p.m. Wednesday timeslot.

Julie Weitz, Carol Mendelsohn, Jen O’Connell and Nick Emmerson exec produce the skein centered on Justin Silver, who offers imaginative solutions to problems for dog owners.

“Dogs are at the center of the story here, but this is a show that reveals as much about human nature as man’s best friend,” Mendelsohn said. “Dogs are often a lightning rod for their owners’ emotions and dysfunction at home. Justin has an amazing gift to break down these complex issues with incredible heart, humor and, sometimes, much-needed candor.”

Through her shingle, Mendelsohn is also exec producing scripted TNT drama pilot “Scent of the Missing,” a contender for a series order that features the leader of a canine search-and-rescue team.

CBS’ Raquel Prods. is producing “Dogs in the City” in association with Shed Media U.S. and Carol Mendelsohn Prods.
