Like most, I use the internet for two express purposes: to try to get famous and to look at animals. And never have I seen my daily plight represented so thoroughly before the trailer for Netflix’s Pet Stars. The new documentary series coming to the streamer showcases the life and work of talent management company Pets on Q; we’ll watch founders Colleen Wilson and Melissa Curtis engage navigate the enchanting but high-octane world of animal-based entertainment. Take a look at the trailer right here.
In the trailer, we see Colleen and Melissa engage with a variety of clientele (and their human handlers). The two-minute clip alone shows off cats, birds, lizards, turtles, rabbits, rats, pigs, monkeys, and countless breeds of dog. While some of the critters are content to just look cute on camera, others brandish particular talents. (Did you happen to catch sight of the surfing pooch at the :24 mark? Or the sliding bunny at the :57? According to his owner, he is “not a normal bunny,” but “a Hollywood bunny,” after all.)
In addition to one-on-one sessions with clients, the series will take Pets on Q to special events. The trailer name-checks the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest, which hosts annually at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. Granted, the series may not only focus on the limelight. Pet Stars also promises a glimpse of the company’s efforts to help animals in need. Per Netflix’s press release, Pet Stars will let viewers “see how [Colleen and Melissa] run their business securing partnerships for pets [and] how they work with rescues to highlight animals in need of a better life!”
A quick jaunt over to Pets on Q’s website taps further into the duo’s humanitarian bent.
Pet Stars will hit Netflix on April 30; its first season will span five episodes, each running 30 minutes in length.
