Step Dogs

Synopsis: When humble rancher Rick Patterson marries movie star Sabrina Eastman, his son Josh (10) finds himself with a new step-sister, Lacey (14). Josh is an introverted boy who doesn't have a lot of confidence and Lacey is a spoiled Hollywood brat who's angry at Sabrina for not letting her have her own reality show. The two kids do not get along and neither do their respective dogs: Josh's dog Meatball is a scruffy, farm mutt who's laid-back and friendly; Cassie is a prim, spoiled, purse city dog who is not into country living. Rick and Sabrina go on their honeymoon for a couple of days, leaving Lacey and Josh in the care of Krystal, a hippie-trippy New Age neighbour. When Lacey sees some people outside the house one night, she starts to think someone is watching the house but Josh dismisses her fears. However, as Cassie quickly develops her 'country nose', she learns that Lacey wasn't wrong. She and Meatball discover that a pair of bumbling crooks, Louie and Terrance, are plotting to steal S

You have T60 seconds to impact.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4...

Come on!

3, 2, 1, 0.


We've cut.

Okay hey people that's a wrap for today.

Okay let's get that lighting

adjusted there.

Oh, thank you.

Does anybody know where

the craft services guys are?

Oh my god, you were amazing!


Gwyneth has nothing on you.


You are an amazing actor

when you're in space.

I can't believe you're

going to give all this up

for a retired stunt guy

who lives in Canada.

Okay, Terence, thank you.

But dude, don't worry okay.

You're gonna be fine, you're

going to find another job.

You're a... a... really,

really good assistant.

Yeah, hey it's me.

We all set?


But... are you eating something?

I told you not to eat when

you're on the phone with me.

Okay, stop.

Thank you.

No, of course she'll have it with her.

She takes it everywhere she goes.

Alright good, she'll be there in a week.

I'll see you soon.

Oh, and Louie,

bring some long johns with you.

Tomorrow's call time is 7am

so make sure you're on time.

I need a hand.

Whatcha reading Lace?

Did you know that the

temperature in Saskatchewan

at this time of year can get

as low as minus 40?

Minus 40.

Come on, how cold can it really be?

Really cold.

I'm okay, I'm good.

Meatball, wait up!


Meatball, come here.

Come here.

Come on, buddy.

Come on.



Hey Josh.

Permission to come aboard?



I know you're nervous about

Sabrina coming to live with us.

And look, no one can ever

replace your mother.

I miss her too, Josh.

Every day.

But we made a promise to her.

A promise we would live

our lives and we'd be happy.

It's been a long time since she passed.

And I know we'll be happy with Sabrina.

And I know your mom would have approved.


I want you to be happy too.

I like Sabrina.

I'm not worried about her.

I just don't want to be left

alone with Lacey.

Okay Lacey.

What's going on, hmm?

What's bothering you?

Well, Aunt Sabrina, it's one thing

for you to take time off of

your career to get married,

but it's completely unfair

for you to torpedo mine

before it even starts.

Is this about the reality show?

Of course it's about the reality show.

It could have been a hit.

Think of the endorsements!

I could have had my own fashion line.

Do you know how much Selena Gomez made

off her fashion line?

You're 15!

You should not be thinking

about this kind of stuff.

And the country is not going

to be good for Cassie.

She's an apartment/luxury

hoteldwelling dog.

The country is going to be

great for Cassie.

It's going to be amazing for you.



Hey Lace, you want to come

help me with the suitcases?

I already told you it's

freezing out there.


Hey you!

How are ya?


I missed you!

I missed you too, baby.

Hi Josh.

How are you?

I'm good.

Where is he?


Hey, come here.


Good boy!



She stepped in poop.

Did you see that?

Poop poop, you stepped in poop.

What are you laughing at?

That's not funny!

From where I'm standing

that's pretty funny!

These are expensive.

You stepped in poop!

You stepped in poop!

Oh, sorry.

Uh, hon.

We'll get it cleaned up,

it's not that bad.

Could it get any worse?

Haha, come on now.

Come on.

We're family now.

Ew, get him off of me.

Get in here.

Come on.

Bring it on in here.

Eww. Get him off of me!

Uh, there's something on you.

Get down, Meatball.

Come on, bud.

Get off her, you big.

Wow, it is cold out here.

Hey Josh, they got a cat!

They got a little itty bitty kitty cat.

It's so cold.
