Dads, a humorous documentary about modern fatherhood directed by Bryce Dallas Howard, daughter of Ron Howard, is headed for Apple TV+ next month.
Dads includes funny stories from Will Smith, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris and others.
The documentary debuted at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2019. And its small-screen launch is scheduled for June 19, which, not coincidentally, the Friday before Father’s Day.
Dads offers wit and wisdom on Apple TV+
“Dads is a joyful exploration of contemporary fatherhood,” notes the description of the film from the Toronto Film Festival. It offers interviews with famous funny men as well as portraits of non-celebrity fathers from around the world.
And Bryce Dallas Howard’s father plays a a big role too. “Interviewed by his daughter, Ron speaks movingly of his goal to meet the standard set by his real-life father, Rance.”
Dads is B. D. Howard’s first feature film. Her father, of course, started his career playing Opie on The Andy Griffith Show, and went on to direct a string of hugely-successful films.
Watching Dads, as well all the other shows on Apple TV+, requires $4.99 monthly subscription. But anyone who recently bought a new Apple device can enjoy the streaming service free for a year.
