Diva Dog's Dog Premiere on HBO/Cinemax

Chelsea, a 13-pound Shih Tzu, has spent the last two years shooting a documentary... make that a DOGamentary...about her life, wearing her own doggie-cam. Her "stage mom" (who doubles as her agent), Emmy-award-winning television producer Gayle Kirschenbaum, says Chelsea was born for the spotlight, and can't wait for the offers to start rolling in.

What began as a light-hearted film about one day in Chelsea's life turned into a story about a single woman's search for love and the unmatchable bond between humans and animals. While filming in downtown New York on September 11th, 2001, Gayle's camera turned on something shocking: the twin towers falling. When a grief-stricken woman asked if she could hold Chelsea for comfort, Gayle realized that her playful companion might have a larger purpose.
Soon, Chelsea was certified as a therapy dog, visiting families affected by the World Trade Center attacks as well as patients in hospitals. Chelsea was credited with bringing a woman out of a coma.
Chelsea and Gayle have attracted the attention of international media, including a front page feature article in the The New York Times, an appearance on the Today Show, and the Howard Stern show and an article in the Ladies' Home Journal. The film includes guest appearances by celebrities including Katie Couric.

Also taken with the subject, legendary documentarian Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter) is featured in the dogamentary as well as films a number of scenes.
