Gann co-created and played the title character in the Australian version of Wilfred.
Have you seen this dog?
If modern life has taught us anything, it's that the domestic pet can have as many psychological hang-ups as its contemporary owner. Depression, anxiety, loneliness and fear of abandonment all lead to behavioral problems and an unstable home environment. Wilfred, the series, an in-depth portrait of such a pet "behaving badly", features an owner, her new suitor and one not-so-happy talking, pot-smoking dog.
Wilfred the dog is the ultimate flawed character. Like David Brent in "The Office," we are charmed by his arrogance and self-righteousness, his falsehoods and misguided passions. Insecure and manipulative, he will stop at nothing to win the love and affection he desires. Although his methods may sometimes be underhand, his innocence and purity of heart can never be questioned. Or can it?
Adam is your boy next door. He causes no trouble and trouble rarely comes his way. When Adam hooks-up with Sarah, he thinks all his Christmases have come at once.

Sarah, like any modern single parent, is trying to create a stable life for herself and her "special little man". Sarah has a long list of failed relationships, which have left her and Wilfred jaded. Neither want to see the other hurt again and Adam has walked into an emotional mine field. So how hard can it be to make friends with a dog? That depends on the situation... and the dog.
