Apple on Friday dropped its first trailer for Dads, a new documentary headed to Apple TV+ ahead of Father’s Day.

Described as a “joyful exploration of contemporary fatherhood,” the film features the likes of Will Smith, Judd Apatow, and Conan O’Brien. It promises rare home-movie footage, hilarious anecdotes, and more.

“Dads is a heartfelt and humorous documentary that celebrates the joys and challenges of parenting in today’s world,” reads Apple’s description. “Featuring six extraordinary fathers from across the globe, this film offers a firsthand glimpse into the trials and tribulations of modern-day parenting.”

The documentary is directed by Bryce Dallas Howard and stars a bunch of other celebrity dads — as well some you won’t have seen on TV before, including Dallas’ own father Ron and her grandfather Rance.

Dads hits Apple TV+ on June 19

You’ll be able to watch Dads on Apple TV+ starting Friday, June 19. Until then, you can enjoy the trailer on YouTube, inside the Apple TV app on supported devices, or right here:

Dads joins The Elephant Queen, Visible, Dear…, and more in the growing lineup of documentaries on Apple TV+. The service is available for $4.99 a month after a 7-day free trial, but Apple is still giving away a year of access with the purchase of eligible Apple devices.
