Stan, Australia's unrivalled home of original productions, released a moving and mysterious teaser for the upcoming Stan Original Series Wolf Like Me, starring AACTA Award-winner Isla Fisher and Josh Gad. The six-part, half-hour drama will premiere 13 January, with all episodes available at once and only on Stan.
A genre-bending, heartfelt drama produced by Jodi Matterson (Nine Perfect Strangers), Bruna Papandrea (Big Little Lies) and Steve Hutensky (The Dry) at Made Up Stories, Wolf Like Me is written and directed by three-time AACTA Award nominee Abe Forsythe (Little Monsters) and is inspired by his own experiences searching for love as a single parent.
Starring alongside series leads Gad and Fisher are Ariel Donoghue (Crossing Paths), Emma Lung (Entourage) and Anthony Taufa (Mr Inbetween), with guest stars including Jake Ryan (Stan Original Series Wolf Creek), Robyn Nevin (Stan Original Film Relic) and Nash Edgerton (The Invisible Man).
Everyone brings their own set of baggage to a new relationship and Gary (Josh Gad) and Mary (Isla Fisher) are no different. When Mary's universe suddenly collides with Gary and his 11-year-old daughter, Emma (Ariel Donoghue), all the signs tell her they're meant to be in each other's lives. But, as their connection deepens, Mary and Gary grow more and more terrified their respective baggage will tear them apart.

Jodi Matterson, Bruna Papandrea and Steve Hutensky from Made Up Stories serve as executive producers, alongside executive producers Abe Forsythe, Isla Fisher and Josh Gad.
