Hounds is a New Zealand television comedy series, written, produced and directed by The Down Low Concept. Set in Auckland, New Zealand it centres on a self centred lawyer, Will Carrington, and the unusual family unit he is thrust into following the death of his father David,. Will inherits half a stately house, half a racing greyhound with its live in trainer, Marty, and guardianship of his estranged half-sister Lily. The series follows Will's transition from a souless city slicker as he deals with his new family that he has never met, and the low rent surroundings of the Greyhound community. Backed with a strong supporting cast of comic actors, including Will's best friend, the arrogant and self-serving Lance and shallow ditsy girlfriend Amber, Hounds also featured well known comics Guy Williams and Rhys Mathewson in minor roles, and veteran New Zealand actors Derek Payne, Steven Ure and David Weatherley The series is one of New Zealand's most critically acclaimed comedies ever produced.
