Wilfred is a comedy about Ryan, a young man struggling unsuccessfully to make his way in the world until he forms a unique friendship with Wilfred, his neighbour’s canine pet. Elijah Wood (The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Happy Feet) stars as Ryan and Jason Gann, who co-created and starred in the Australian series, plays the title character, Wilfred.

Everyone else sees Wilfred as just a dog, but Ryan sees a rude, somewhat surly, yet irrepressibly brave and honest Australian bloke in a cheap dog suit. While leading him through a series of comedic and existential adventures, Wilfred the dog shows Ryan the man how to overcome his fears and embrace the world around him.
