AceShowbiz - "Boyhood" director Richard Linklater is developing a new animal rescue series for CBS All Access.
The untitled reality show, executive produced by TV self-help guru Dr. Phil McGraw and his son Jay, will be set in and around the filmmaker's hometown of Austin, Texas.
"I come to this project hoping to shine a light on the folks I've met who are making a difference everyday in the lives of unwanted, abused, and disabled animals," Linklater tells Deadline. "What strikes me most is the joy and discovery on both sides of the relationship between the animals and their human caregivers."
"These are inspirational stories that I believe will be a positive force in the world. I'm grateful to CBS All Access for their support in this adventure."
