WILL ARNETT & AN ALL-STAR CAST TO STAR IN SHOW DOGS

WILL ARNETT TO STAR IN LIVE ACTION FAMILY COMEDY SHOW DOGS

SHOW DOGS stars a charming and lovable cast of talking canine characters, including our hero Max (voiced by Ludacris), a rugged lone-wolf Rottweiler NYPD police dog. Max and his human FBI partner (Will Arnett) are investigating the kidnapping of a baby panda by an underground network of illegal animal traders when they get a tip that the crime ring is planning to sell the panda at the prestigious Canini Invitational Dog Show. The uber-macho Max must undergo a makeover with the help of a seasoned trainer (Natasha Lyonne) – mud baths, ballet lessons, a Brazilian waxing – to go undercover in order to thwart the plot. In the hands of his new human handler Frank, Max gets in touch with his inner show dog, and also learns that trusting the help of others can sometimes be more rewarding than working alone.

ALL-STAR VOICE CAST WILL FEATURE NATASHA LYONNE, LUDACRIS, STANLEY TUCCI, ALAN CUMMING, GABRIEL IGLESIAS AND SHAQUILLE O’NEAL
