Good Dog is a Canadian television comedy-drama series which aired for one season on HBO Canada. The show follows the life of character George Findlay, a role that Ken Finkleman reprised from The Newsroom.


George Findlay (Finkleman) is a character who has been present in virtually all of Finkleman's past television projects, including The Newsroom, More Tears, Foolish Heart and Foreign Objects.[1] A self-centred and unsympathetic television producer, in Good Dog he is trying to launch a reality show about his life with his new, much younger girlfriend Claire (Lauren Lee Smith).

The series was initially renewed for a ten-episode second season, with a retooled storyline focusing on cable news.[2] However, this season was instead retitled as a new program titled Good God.[3]
