Jason Ritter (star of TV's "Kevin Probably Saves the World") gets the surprise of his life when he discovers his wife has taken on the characteristics of a dog in the trailer for "Bitch," a darkly comic satire written and directed by and co-starring actress-filmmaker Marianna Palka (Good Dick, Netflix's GLOW).

In the film, Ritter plays a self-involved businessman who frequently works all hours of the day, leaving his underappreciated and emotionally exhausted wife (played by Palka) to care for their four children alone. But when she suddenly has a severe mental breakdown, which causes her to behave like a stray dog, Ritter's character has no other choice but to pick up the slack and, for the first time in his life, perform his parental duties.

"Bitch" premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and co-stars Jaime King (Hart of Dixie) and Brighton Sharbino (The Walking Dead) with appearances by Sol Rodriguez (Devious Maids), Roger Guenveur Smith (Do the Right Thing), Eric Edelstein (Green Room), and Martin Starr (Silicon Valley).

The film is currently slated to hit theaters on November 10th.

synopsis:
Jill, a lonely, unfulfilled housewife with four children, paces on her dining room table with a belt around her neck, contemplating a desperate end. Her husband, Bill, focused on his identity as breadwinner and an affair with a lusty co-worker, is as oblivious to Jill's growing terror that she will do something destructive as he is to the panic at his unraveling company. Meanwhile, dogs bark and howl through the night, as one persistent mutt continually stalks the family's yard. When Jill's psyche finally breaks, she takes on a vicious new canine persona, and Bill is forced to become reacquainted with his children and sister-in-law as they attempt to keep the family together during this bizarre crisis.
