Jason Ritter watches Marianna Palka turn full dog in trailer for dark comedy 'Bitch' (exclusive)

Here’s one strategy for stress management and relief you probably haven’t encountered yet.

In the biting new comedy Bitch (watch the exclusive trailer above), Jill Hart (Marianna Palka) is a nerve-wracked mother of four whose anxiety certainly isn’t helped by the fact that her husband, Bill (Jason Ritter), works 18 hours a day and philanders for a couple more. (Plus, there’s a dog watching her.)

So imagine Bill’s surprise when one day he comes home to find that Jill has adopted the psyche of a pooch: She’s crawling on all fours, barking, and growling — and definitely no longer tending to the house, kids and other domestic duties, leaving it to Bill to clean, clothe, and feed their fam (spoiler alert: he does a terrible job).

Written and directed by the Scottish multihyphante Palka (Good Dick), the film co-stars Jaime King, Brighton Sharbino, Rio Mangini, Kingston Foster, and Jason Maybaum.

Bitch, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, opens Nov. 10.
