ABC is looking for its own cute canines after ordering a remake of Rebel Wilson’s Australian reality series Puppy perfect.
The hustle and bustle and Bridesmaids Star Wilson, who hosted the Australian original, will host the US version for Disney’s own network.
Lisa Vanderpump, the famous dog groomer Jorge Bendersky and the veterinarian Dr. Callie Harris as a trio of judges.
The eight-episode series features ten of the best dog groomers in the country along with their assistants as they take part in a series of challenges. Each week the teams compete in two challenges: the Immunity Puppertunity Challenge and the Ultimutt Challenge showdown. The teams will face the challenges of care and present their creations on the “dogwalk”. Every week until the season finale there is an elimination in which the three best teams compete for a huge cash prize and the Pooch Perfect trophy.
The series, due to air later in the spring, is produced by Beyond Media Rights, which produced and owns the original.
The Australian series debuted on Seven Network in February 2020 and has subsequently been redesigned by the BBC, directed by Sheridan Smith, and made available as an option in a number of other territories.
