Guide Dogs for the Blind was the subject of an award-winning 2018 feature-length documentary called "Pick of the Litter." We are thrilled to report that the documentary has been developed into a television docu-series by the same name, set to air in late December 2019 on the new subscription streaming service Disney+.
The series documents the ups and downs of an adorable group of six dogs on their fascinating and surprisingly suspenseful quest to become guides for Guide Dogs for the Blind, the ultimate canine career. We are delighted that the series captures both sides of the harness by showcasing the people who love, train, and are paired with GDB dogs.
The series is slated to be audio described.
Stay tuned for more info!
