New­found­land Re­nais­sance man Joel Thomas Hynes has writ­ten a Gov­er­nor Gen­eral’s Award– win­ning novel, scripted plays, and acted on screens big and small, in­clud­ing roles in The Book of Ne­groes and Or­phan Black. So it’s hardly a sur­prise that he both wrote and stars in his lat­est project, Lit­tle Dog, a bit­terly funny CBC se­ries about a boxer who walks away from a cham­pi­onship fight, mid-match. Five years after throw­ing his ca­reer away, he gets a chance at a re­match, only to find that his big­gest hur­dles are now out­side the ring.
