US family comedy show, Show Dogs, has completed filming in Wales, it has been announced.

Show Dogs stars Will Arnett and Natasha Lyonne and features a cast of talking dogs using computer-generated visual effects to animate and manipulate the faces of the live dog characters.

The film centres on Max, a rugged, lone-wolf Rottweiler NYPD police dog partnered with Arnett. The two investigate the kidnapping of a baby panda by an underground network of illegal animal traders and a tip that they plan to sell the panda at the Canini Invitational Dog Show. The dog must undergo a makeover with the help of a seasoned trainer (Lyonne) to go undercover in order to thwart the plot.

Directed by Raja Gosnell and produced by Deepak Nayar, a majority of principal photography for Show Dogs took place at Pinewood Studio Wales, as well as locations around the country which doubled as the US.

The production, which was supported by business finance from the Welsh Government, as well as the Media Investment Budget, advised by Pinewood Pictures, spent more than £4.7m on Welsh goods and services in the region. It also delivered work and development opportunities for Welsh crew.

Deepak, who produced with Philip von Alvensleben, said: "Principal photography is now complete and we're really happy with how it went and have high expectations for Show Dogs. We had a great time in Wales and I was delighted with the Welsh crews we worked with – they were thoroughly professional, very accommodating, welcoming and friendly. We couldn't have asked for more. It's been a great experience and one I'd like to repeat as I'm very keen to carry out more projects in Wales – so watch this space."

Ken Skates, Welsh Government Economy Secretary, added: "We promote Wales as being an excellent location for feature films and TV productions so it's particularly good to hear that a producer of Deepak Nayar's standing not only had a great experience filming in Wales but is keen to return with more projects. That's a great testimonial and we couldn't ask for a better endorsement."
