It seems as though the universe has brought the unlikely pair together, if only they keep following the signs to discover why.
Writer and producer of the show, Abe Forsythe tells of his excitement for the project and states
I’m so excited to have Isla [Fisher] and Josh [Gad] on board, and I know the audience will be surprised seeing them in a different way as these characters.

He also is the voice behind everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf, from the Frozen franchise, in which he stars alongside Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, and Jonathon Groff.
Fisher has worked with the Walt Disney Company a handful of times, starring in the 2009’s Confessions of a Shopaholic, which was released under Touchstone Pictures- a division of the Walt Disney Company.
She has also voiced the character Button in the Disney Junior show, Sofia the First.
