Peacock has revealed the premiere date, key art and first photos for Wolf Like Me, a genre-bending romantic comedy series starring Josh Gad (Central Park, Avenue 5) and Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers, Definitely Maybe).
Premiering on January 13, 2022 and consisting of six 30-minute episodes, Wolf Like Me is created, written and directed by Abe Forsythe (Little Monsters).
Everyone brings their own set of baggage to a new relationship. Gary (Josh Gad) and Mary (Isla 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.
“I’d love for audiences to go into watching the series not knowing where it’s going or what gets revealed as the show progresses because I think if that happens, then it’s going to shock and surprise people,” Forsythe said.
“You get to the end of every episode and there’s a reason that you have to keep watching.”
“We fell in love with Abe Forsythe’s imaginative storytelling and gift for creating complex and compelling characters,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, previously.
“With the incredibly talented Isla Fisher and Josh Gad at the center, Wolf Like Me will be engaging, quirky and wholly original.”
“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,” added 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.”
Filmed in Australia, Wolf Like Me is produced by Made Up Stories in partnership with Endeavor Content and Stan.
Jodi Matterson, Bruna Papandrea and Steve Hutensky from Made Up Stories serve as executive producers alongside executive producers Abe Forsythe, Josh Gad and Isla Fisher.
