FX Orders Wilfred, a Sitcom about Elijah Wood and His Alcoholic Dog

FX just ordered 11 episodes of a new comedy called WIlfred, which will star Elijah Wood. It sounds pretty insane! It'll be "about a guy, Ryan (Wood), the girl next door (Fiona Gubelmann), and mixed-breed dog, Wilfred (Jason Gann), who is part Labrador retriever and part Russell Crowe on a bender."

It's based on an Australian show of the same name, and creator of the original Jason Gann will play the titular/canine role. Consider my interest piqued. Look for it next summer.

    I've seen a few episode of the original version of Wilfrid on IFC and it was pretty funny, so it's already aired here. Don't know why they need to make an American version, but it sounds good.

    I am skeptical. Elijah Wood can be funny (and creepy when he wants to be), just not sure about the premise. People-animals creep me out. I think it's remnants of childhood Zoobilee Zoo trauma.
