The documentary, scheduled for release on Apple TV two days before Father’s Day, is a “unique and humorous” film that examines the changing role of fatherhood in the modern world. “Dads” features famous comedians offering insights from their childhood and their own experiences as fathers, as they undergo the trials and tribulations of parenthood.
Directed by Bryce Dallas Howard, who confirmed the release date via Twitter, on Saturday, the film also examines his own family, with interviews of his brother covering the previous period and becoming dad for the first time, as well as his father and grandfather. Bryce is the daughter of filmmaker Ron Howard, who also runs Imagine Documentaries.
The film is part of an agreement signed between Apple and Imagine in January 2019, where Apple has the first right of refusal for fiction feature films and studio series.
Other famous faces appearing in “Dads” include Jimmy Fallon, Judd Apatow, Neil Patrick Harris, Ken Jeong, Kimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien, Patton Oswalt and Will Smith, among others. Bryce and father Ron Howard are the producers of the film, with the executive producer list comprised of Kelly Mullen, Giles Morrison, Sara Bernstein, Marc Gilbar and Meredith Kaulfers.
