David Hewlett’s film has generated a tremendous amount of interest amongst the Stargate fan online community and we are thrilled to give them what they want with this initiative.”
That’s MGM Senior Executive Vice President Charles Cohen speaking about A Dog’s Breakfast, a dark comedy written and directed by Stargate: Atlantis star David Hewlett and features many of the cast and crew of the MGM’s two hit Stargate television series. A Dog’s Breakfast,which has developed a cult following online, will be making its digital debut today on the iTunes® Store (www.itunes.com) and Amazon Unbox™ (http://unbox.amazon.com).
“We’ve got such a huge loyal and tech-savvy fan base for this film. What better way to premiere it than on their home turf, with an online iTunes and Amazon release!" David Hewlett says of the fan and viewership base that has made A Dog’s Breakfast a huge success.
With over 250,000 YouTube views for the trailer and nominations for four Bloggers Choice Awards including “Best Celebrity Blogger,” “Best Blog of All Time,” “Best Entertainment Blog” and “Best Geek Blog” ADogsBreakfastMovie.com has created wildly popular internet buzz for the film and is a treat for Stargate fans and dog lovers alike.
A Dog’s Breakfast tells the story of Patrick (David Hewlett) and Marilyn (Kate Hewlett) who are siblings that have always driven each other a little crazy. When Marilyn brings home her new TV-star fiancé, Ryan (Paul McGillion), it seems to send Patrick over the edge. First he tries to drive a wedge between the happy couple, and then he reaches for sharper instruments. Every family has a few skeletons in the closet: A Dog’s Breakfast is the hell-of-a-mess Patrick makes when he tries to add another to his.
The film also stars Christopher Judge (Stargate SG-1), Rachel Luttrell (Stargate Atlantis), Amanda Byram (Swan), Mars the Dog, with writing by Hewlett and is produced by Jane Loughman, and John G. Lenic. MGM Home Entertainment will release A Dog’s Breakfast on DVD September 18, 2007. For more information on the film, please visit www.adogsbreakfastmovie.com.
