ABC viewers will soon get a taste of a dog’s life.

The new sitcom Downward Dog premieres Wednesday, May 17 following the season finale of Modern Family.

According to ABC, this premiere will be a “sneak peek” of sorts, and the show will move to a regular Tuesday night slot on May 23.

Downward Dog stars Allison Tolman (Fargo) as Nan, a woman struggling to balance a chaotic personal life with a stressful job and an overbearing boss (Barry Rothbart).

The show is actually told from the point of view of her dog, Martin (voiced by Samm Hodges), who gets more and more thoughtful as he observes Nan’s struggles in the modern world.
