Actor Will Arnett

Will Arnett and "Orange is the New Black" star Natasha Lyonne have boarded the live-action family comedy "Show Dogs."

The duo will join a voice cast that also includes Ludacris, Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Gabriel Iglesias and Shaquille O'Neal.

In the film, Ludacris voices the tough, Rottweiler NYPD police dog partnered with Arnett. To bust an underground animal ring, the canine must enter a dog show and undergoes a beauty makeover that includes mud baths, ballet lessons and a Brazilian waxing to thwart an animal trading plot.

Shooting for the film began last month in the UK.

The project is being developed by Open Road.
