Solvan “Slick” Naim loves his rescue dog so much that he decided to write and direct a Netflix show about him. The titular puggle, Bruno, was adopted by Naim five years ago as a companion for himself and his other dog Bella.
“It’s a comedy about a love story between a man and his dog in the quirky neighborhood of Bushwick,” Naim said. “I was always a fan of SeinfeldÂ andÂ Curb Your Enthusiasm; it’s like that but with dogs in the hood.” It’s Bruno premieres on May 17.
Naim said that some of the plot lines in the story are made up, and others are exaggerated. However, many are drawn from real life experiences he and Bruno have lived while walking the streets of Bushwick.
Naim wants to share Bruno’s happy face with the world and refers to him as the “best actor” of the series both on- and off- camera. Bruno apparently never missed a single mark, outperformed other trained animals on the show’s set, and is fully ready to make the world fall in love with him.
