Peacock announced today a straight to series order of Wolf Like Me.
The six-episode genre-bending romantic comedy will star Josh Gad and Isla Fisher. Check out the official series description from Peacock below.
Everyone brings their own set of baggage to a new relationship. 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.
Wolf Like Me comes from writer/creator Abe Forsythe (Little Monsters). Forsythe will also direct all six episodes.
“Wolf Like Me is a very meaningful project for me. The stakes are extremely high but grounded by things we can all relate to. I’m so excited to have Isla and Josh on board, and I know the audience will be surprised seeing them in a different way as these characters,” said Forsythe. “I was never going to tell this story with anyone other than Made Up Stories, and I feel very fortunate for us all to be teaming up with Endeavor Content and to have found a home with Peacock and Stan.”
Peacock rep Lisa Katz (President of Scripted Content at NBC) also expressed the studio’s excitement for the project.
“We fell in love with Abe Forsythe’s imaginative storytelling and gift for creating complex and compelling characters. With the incredibly talented Isla Fisher and Josh Gad at the center, WOLF LIKE ME will be engaging, quirky and wholly original,” said Katz.
At this time, a premiere date has not been announced.
