W.C. Fields famously said, “Never work with animals or children.” Well, NBC is bucking at least half of that recommendation with their upcoming series “Animal Practice,” and it looks like it could be the right move.

The just picked up comedy stars Justin Kirk as Dr. George Coleman, the top veterinarian in New York. The conflict comes in when the good doctor’s new boss is his old flame. The show also features Tyler Labine and Bobby Lee.

Check out the extended trailer. It may feature the best use of a monkey since Marcel on “Friends.” Plus, who doesn’t like watching turtle racing.

“Animal Practice” will air on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
