ANIMAL PRACTICE, NBC, previews & teasers
On this week's episode of the new NBC comedy ANIMAL PRACTICE titled, 'WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINA COLEMAN?' when George's (Justin Kirk) overbearing mother Virginia (guest star Annie Potts, “GCB”) shows up at the hospital with her sick cat, named "cat," George must heal the cat or risk the alternative – having to keep her company to fill the void. Meanwhile, Dorothy (JoAnna Garcia Swisher) counsels Dr. Leiter (guest star June Diane Raphael, Upright Citizens Brigade) who must face the board of directors before she can settle in at the hospital. Tyler Labine, Bobby Lee, Kym Whitley and Betsy Sodaro also star. Get a sneak peek below!
"Animal Practice" is a new comedy centering on Dr. George Coleman (Justin Kirk, "Weeds" "Angels in America"), a top veterinarian with an impressive list of famous animal patients at the Crane Animal Hospital – a bustling New York City veterinary practice where it often seems as if the patients are running the place.
Despite his unorthodox style, George has an undeniable gift with animals of all kinds – except the human kind. Much to his chagrin, George recently learned that his ex-girlfriend, Dorothy Crane (JoAnna Garcia Swisher, "Better with You"), has inherited the family business and is now George’s boss. Whip-smart and ambitious, Dorothy shakes up the hospital as she brings order to the chaos and butts heads with George’s animal-friendly administration.
