‘Animal Practice’ to Not Be THAT Broad; Star Annie’s Boobs


When NBC talks about their new unsophisticated comedies, it’s hard not to think of Animal Practice first. It might have some solid people working on it but the show just looks so farcical, so silly. This doesn’t mean it’s bad – it just looks broad. Executive producer Anthony Russo told reporters the writers are very aware of how broad the show can go but the goal was to make a “smart, grounded comedy” without becoming “out-of-this-world outlandish.” Executive producer Scot Armstrong (a UCB alum who wrote The Hangover II and produced Best Friends Forever) said there is definitely a point where there’s “too much icing on the cake.” Executive producer Alessandro Tanaka:

 “[The show stays] true to personal relationships, I don’t’ think we’re going to go off into Broadsville. It’s so easy to say: ‘Why don’t we just have dog keep tap dancing?’ At the end of the say, this is going to be a real animal hospital.”
“So she’s just super-cool. Like, she’s the most famous monkey in Hollywood, so you try to be cool around her. We just presented an award together this weekend at the Teen Choice Awards, so we hang out off set too.”
