It’s only been two days since Mother’s Day and we’re already in full preparation to celebrate Dear Ol’ Dad. Father‘s Day lands on Sunday, June 21 this year, and while “Stay Home” ordinances should be lifted—if only by a bit—by that time, many dads will still be quarantined away from their children. According to reports, a number of celebrity papas star in Dads, an Apple TV+ documentary that will include quips, words of wisdom, and home footage from famous fathers.
Dads is produced by Nine Muses Entertainment, in association with Dove Men+Care, and highlights how fatherhood and the role of fathers has shifted over time. The film will feature heartfelt and funny interviews with the likes of Judd Apatow, Ron Howard, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris, Ron Howard, Reed Howard, Ken Jeong, Jimmy Kimmel, Hasan Minhaj, Conan O’Brien, Patton Oswalt, Will Smith, and Kenan Thompson.
While the documentary premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last year, this will be the first time it will be released to a wide audience. “A feature-length documentary exploring modern fatherhood. Bringing attention to the critical role fathers play and the importance of paternity leave, the film is an unfiltered and humorous look at being a dad,” Dove writes of the film. Dads will be available on June 19.
