In a gilded kennel lives a famous movie star named Mazy. While other dogs chase sticks at the park, Mazy chases her acting dreams. But then one morning Mazy’s agent delivers bad news. They are only giving acting jobs to purebreds now. And Mazy is a mongrel. Can Mazy embrace what it is that makes her special and find her perfect role?
As expected, Isla attended the G’Day AAA Arts Gala in Los Angeles yesterday, where she received the award for Excellence in the Arts.

Isla Fisher & Greg Kinnear To Topline Family Comedy ‘The Present’ From ‘How To Be Single’ Helmer Christian Ditter
Isla Fisher (Wolf Like Me) and Greg Kinnear (Shining Vale) will topline the family comedy The Present, from director Christian Ditter (How to Be Single), which has entered production in Los Angeles.
In the film from Stuart Ford’s independent content studio AGC Studios, a brilliant boy discovers he can manipulate time using an enchanted family heirloom, then teaming up with his siblings to go back to the eve of their parents’ separation in hopes of changing the outcome. As their schemes become more elaborate, the siblings will learn about family bonds and what they can and can’t control. Fisher and Kinnear are playing the parents in search of reconciliation, with Easton Rocket Sweda (General Hospital), Shay Rudolph (The Baby-Sitters Club) and Mason Shea Joyce (Euphoria) portraying the siblings who just might be the only people who can make that happen.
Ross Butler (Shazam!) also stars in the film written by Emmy winner Jay Martel (Key and Peele). Chairman and CEO Ford is producing alongside Linda McDonough for AGC Studios, with Marcei Brown and Jessica Malanaphy for CatchLightStudios (The Aviary). Martel, CatchLight’s Jason Clark, and AGC’s Zach Garrett and Miguel Palos are serving as executive producers.
After directing four German features—all of which were box-office hits and festival favorites—Ditter transitioned to directing English-language films with the rom-com Love, Rosie, following that pic up with New Line’s How to Be Single. He then served as director and executive producer on the Netflix series Girlboss, most recently creating the Netflix series Biohacker, which he’s directed and produced for two seasons.
Fisher stars alongside Josh Gad in the Peacock series Wolf Like Me, which was renewed for a second season last month, and has also been cast in Josh Greenbaum’s upcoming comedy Strays for Universal. The actress is also known for turns in films including Wedding Crashers, Nocturnal Animals, The Beach Bum, Tag, Greed, Now You See Me, The Great Gatsby, Rise of the Guardians, Bachelorette and I Heart Huckabees, among others. Additional TV credits include Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development.
