"I feel very lucky to be involved in such an exciting project. It's always a joy to work with Marc and Phil of course. With Max and the brilliant Adrian Shergold also involved this promises to be a wonderful experience. We have quality running all the way through this production so hopefully together we can make MAD DOGS something really special.In many ways the idea for MAD DOGS was born out of friendship: it was both the long-term friendships of Phil, John, Marc and Max, who had decided they wanted to work together and my own friendship with Phil and writer Cris Cole that pulled us all together. We are all roughly the same age, and at the same phase of life, and so it seemed fitting for us to place themes of ‘growing older’ and friendship at the heart of MAD DOGS, and to create a drama that would allow us to explore the darker recesses of both.” – Suzanne Mackie, executive producer.
