Character Descriptions:

MICHAEL ROWLAND will portray Fred “Shred” Taylor, the optimistic rookie Animal Control officer and Frank’s (McHale) new partner. The former professional snowboarder blew out his knee three months shy of the Olympics, but even that hasn’t soured his upbeat outlook on life.

GRACE PALMER will portray Victoria Sands, the hedonistic free spirit of the Animal Control officers. Not one to stay-at-home, Victoria is the complete opposite of her partner Amit (Patel).

GERRY DEE is Templeton Dudge, an Animal Control officer from a neighboring precinct with a real chip on his shoulder. He’s gunning for Emily’s (Lovell) job and relies on Dolores (Ogmundson) to keep him apprised of any catastrophes that have gone down on her watch.

KELLI OGMUNDSON will portray Dolores Stubb, the receptionist at the Animal Control precinct. She’s the office killjoy who adores Templeton (Dee), the officer from another precinct who is gunning for Emily’s job.

ALVINA AUGUST is Dr. Summers, the Animal Control veterinarian. Frank has been crushing on her for months, but this vet happens to be a huge fan of winter sports and is wowed by Shred.
