Description

Meet the unlikely Dev Degraw, son of the iconoclastic governor of Alabama and former child actor on the historically bad television drama Bayou Dog. In Tuscaloosa--home of the University of Alabama, ferocious wiener dogs, butter-eating contests, jackleg lawyers, and one-eyed stalkers--Dev moves among the denizens of local watering holes, the political bigwigs of the state capital, and the sundry elements of B-movie Hollywood.

As Wonderdog unfolds, he is trying his best to stay away from his father's heated bid for reelection and out of a costar's plans to organize a Bayou Dog cast reunion. But his efforts to rectify past glories with more recent foibles are foiled, and Dev is unwittingly thrust upon a career path that will at last begin to define him. The result is a tour de force of American revelry and a wholly original look at the comic vagaries of the human condition.
