AbstractHistoryArchive Description

When Adam meets Sarah at a Powderfinger concert, he doesn't realise that he will have to contend with the jealousies of her 'special little man': Wilfred, her foul-mouthed, bad-tempered, hard-partying dog.

Adaptations

form y Wilfred David Zuckerman , United States of America (USA) : Wilfred Productions FX Network , 2011-2014 8286780 2011 series - publisher film/TV humour

An American adaptation of the Australian television series of the same name.

Although Jason Gann remained involved with the American adaptation, the series took a distinctly different form to its Australian inspiration, and Gann's creative involvement was not as intensive as it was with the Australian version.

Notes

  • Award winning and individually published episodes in this series are included on AustLit.
  • In 2013, after the success of the American version, there were widespread reports that Renegade Films (the production company behind the Australian version of Wilfred) had sold the concept to a Ukrainian-based production company, Star Media Group, who would make a Russian version called Charlie. As of 2015, no further information on this production is available.
