The Dog Walkers Club



Page Count: 



Age Rating:

A lonely elderly widow tries to find her place in a small English village, after the death of her husband, by joining a dog-walking club filled with some very colourful characters.

Target Demographic: Sunday evening viewers, Middle aged and above. Parents and older children. Lovers of ‘Call The Midwife’ and ‘Downton Abbey’. Think ‘Calendar Girls’, ‘A Song For Marion’ and a gentle amount of ‘One Foot In The Grave’.

Episode length: 56minutes Genre: Comedy/Drama Episodes: 6

June lost her husband 18 months ago and the time has come for her to re-establish herself in the local village of Memsbury. But the village has changed in the last few years.

Thankfully she makes friends with a group of ladies who all have 3 things in common. 1. They love walking their dogs together. 2. They love (a bit too much) drinking sherry together in the local pub on a Tuesday afternoon and 3: They all have amazing stories to tell.

Each episode sees June move on with her life and come to terms with the loss of her Charlie. What makes this series truly original is in every episode, will see a completely separate story played out from the stories and secrets of all the colourful characters in the village - a different story each week, sewn in to the fabric of the episode. Some dramatic, some funny and some just plain daft - but all fascinating.

This is a group of old ladies as you’ve never seen them before, along with their very individual dogs. Tongue in cheek humour mixed with touching drama, it’s a series that shows older people in a fairer, truer light and is open to be enjoyed by all ages.

The Writer: David J. Keogh

I am a professional, award winning screenwriter. I love bringing characters to life and especially love writing real people in difficult situations where they have to fight against the odds. My first major screenplay, Cadeby, has been compared to Braveheart, whilst my second, Think Forward, has been compared to Harry Brown. My first feature film which I co-wrote and starred in, Destination Dewsbury, will be released in 2019. I am open to collaborative writing, working with producers and creatives and frankly, just love what I do. A number of my screenplays are currently in development. Go to bio
