Lisa Kudrow, Vincent D’Onofrio and Hank Azaria are starring in Propaganda Films’ romantic comedy “Bark,” helmed by first-timer Kasia Adamik.

Overseas Filmgroup will represent foreign rights on “Bark,” in which a young woman has a nervous breakdown and believes she’s a dog. Script was penned by actress turned scribe Heather Morgan (“The Drew Carey Show”). She also has a leading role in the title, now shooting in Los Angeles.

Budgeted under $5 million, the film is produced by Agnieszka Holland along with Tom Reed and Alicia Allain.

Project is the first packaged and financed at Propaganda since Pat Dollard came in to head the management division in May.

“We wanted to move quickly for the filmmakers in the management division,” said Dollard. “I’m pleased to see Kasia make the transition to become a very talented first-time director.”

Adamik has previously served as a storyboard artist on films including “Angel Eyes,” “Beloved” and “The Wood.” Prior to the greenlight for “Bark,” she was preparing to begin storyboard work on Spike Jonze’s “Adaptation.”

Propaganda Films prexy Rick Hess said “Bark” was a perfect example of how the company wants to serve its clients. Propaganda financed pre-production out of pocket and partially financed production through the company’s credit line with City National Bank.
