Wolf like me is coming to Peacock and this original shows a different side of Isla Fisher and Josh Gad (The Voice of Olaf the Snowman from Frozen). Comedies are the usual content you will see on their repertoire as actors. Now Both of them are in a darker Drama series premiering this 13 January 2022. Josh usually has this high pitch energetic voice in films and musicals he starred in and it is refreshing to see him more serious. Isla Fisher is mostly in romcoms but she did some more serious films but she is mostly known for her comedy.
Gary (Josh Gad) is a widowed single father who is raising his daughter on how to own while still mourning the death of his wife. Mary (Isla Fisher) has a secret that she conceals. The title seemed to be a clue about her secret. Netizens are speculating she could be a werewolf but it could be wrong because it is never mentioned in the trailer. There is a bit of inclination about it but it’s subtle.
The trailer ended with Mary inside a cell while Gary is looking through a Window. Mary said ” This is me, This is who I really am”
The two of them met in an accident but Mary’s Kindness gives them a connection. It is like the Universe destined them to meet and be part of each other’s life. He looks scared so there is a chance that the title does make sense in a literal way.
These two lost souls will meet and start a relationship with all the pieces of baggage they have included.

Peacock has low tendencies when it comes to canceling shows. This is only a 6 episode mini-series but there is potential for renewal. Fortunately, unlike Netflix and FOX tv networks, Peacock is not canceling crazy.
