Disney Channel’s Newest Star is a “Hairy” One! “Dog With A Blog” Announced

Disney Channel announced their newest star today, and he might be one of the cutest yet!

Disney Channel has ordered “Dog With A Blog,” a live action comedy series from Emmy-winning producer Michael B. Kaplan. The show is a family sitcom from the pet’s point-of-view, it centers on step-siblings whose parents buy them a dog to encourage them to get along. That happens – to some extent – as brother and sister discover a big secret about their family’s latest addition… that the dog can talk AND blog.

Landing the big role of the dog is a four year-old, mixed breed named Kuma in the role of Stan, the talking dog with a blog. Production on the multi-camera series will begin this June in Hollywood for premiere in fall 2012 on Disney Channel U.S. and soon thereafter on Disney Channels around the world.

The show will also star G. Hannelius (“Den Brother,” “Good Luck Charlie”), Blake Michael (“Lemonade Mouth”), Francesca Capaldi (“A.N.T. Farm”), Beth Littleford (“I’m in the Band,” “Crazy, Stupid Love,” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”), Regan Burns (“Wizards of Waverly Place”) and Stephen Full (“I’m in the Band”) as the voice of Stan the dog. Kuma is a Husky/Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix who was rescued from a shelter. He is trained by Guin Dill and Steve Solomon of Good Dog Animals, an animal company with over 40 years combined experience in the motion picture and TV industry.
