Season One and Season Two of the original version of Wilfred, the multi-award winning Australian comedy series about a foul-mouthed, beer-swilling, pot-smoking dog that thinks it’s human (and the inspiration behind the US remake starring Elijah Wood), will be released as a DVD box set on 20 August 2012 from Fabulous Films.
The series is also available as two separate DVDs, Wilfred: Season One and Wilfred: Season Two.
Much darker and infinitely more amusing than its toned down US counterpart, Wilfred is the very original brainchild of writers and stars, Jason Gann and Adam Zwar, and series director Tony Rogers and is a must-see show for comedy fans.
Wilfred began life as a short film of the same name and was the winner of the Best Comedy award at the world’s largest short film festival, Sydney’s Tropfest. Following the success of the short film (which can now be seen in the first seven minutes of the first episode of Wilfred: Season One), the trio adapted it into the award-wining hit show.
Adam (Zwar) can hardly believe his luck when he’s invited home by Sarah (Cindy Waddingham), a gorgeous young woman he meets at a Powderfinger concert. But his joy is quickly turned on its head when he is introduced to Sarah’s pet dog, Wilfred (Gann).
To the rest of the world Wilfred is an ordinary canine, but to Adam he’s a man in a dog suit - a jealous and partially psychotic man who seems determined to make Adam feel as uncomfortable as possible while dreaming up cruelly inventive way of sabotaging the new lovers’ relationship. This bizarre situation forces Adam to question his sanity and proves without a doubt that a dog is not always a man’s best friend.
The Wilfred Season One and Season Two DVD box set (cert 18) includes 4 discs featuring all eight episodes of each respective Season plus a selection of Bonus Features including outtakes and other previously unseen footage from the show (priced at £49.99).
Wilfred: Season One (cert. 18) and Wilfred: Season Two (cert. 18) are available separately on DVD (priced at £24.99 each).
