Isla Fisher and Josh Gad Are Teaming Up for a New Stan Original Series
A new original series is coming to Stan starring our very own Isla Fisher and Beauty and the Beast actor Josh Gad.
The project, titled Wolf Like Me, is a six-part drama series that was written by Abe Forsythe who drew inspiration from his own experience as a 40-something single parent. Forsythe will also direct all episodes of the project which will be filmed in Australia over the coming months.
The official show synopsis reads, “Everyone brings their own set of baggage to a new relationship and in Wolf Like Me, Gary (Gad) and Mary (Fisher) are no different. Gary is an emotional wreck and struggles to provide for his daughter since the death of his wife. Mary has a secret she can’t bring herself to share with anyone. The universe brought these two together for a reason, they just need to keep following the signs.”
The production, which is described as a “genre-bending heartfelt drama,” is being produced in conjunction with US streaming service Peacock which falls under the NBCUniversal umbrella.
In a statement, Stan’s Chief Content Officer Nick Forward said: “Wolf Like Me promises to be a premium Australian made drama that will see Stan expand its partnership with NBCUniversal and Peacock.
“We look forward to seeing the talented production team at Made Up Stories, alongside Abe Forsythe, Josh Gad and Isla Fisher, bring this world-class Australian story to life.”
