Project Dad follows Donnell Rawlings (comedian, Chappelle’s Show), Daniel Cosgrove (Aiden on Days of our Lives), and DJ Skribble (world-ranked disc jockey, MTV’s TRL) as they’re left alone with their kids while their partners leave home for a few days. The series turns the camera on these three busy celebrity dads as they try to put their careers to the side and get to know their children. The dads struggle to balance caring for a home, parenting and pursuing a full-time career — on their own.
“Project Dad will have viewers laughing, crying and relishing in the real life moments these dads have with their children,” said William J. Rouhana, Jr., executive chairman of Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. “The show adds to our library of inspirational and entertaining content, and we expect the show to resonate with all audiences. This is our second television series to air on a cable network in just two years, and we expect more to follow.
The series will also air next year on TLC on January 5 at 5 p.m.
Project Dad is based on the hit international series Return of Superman that was originally broadcast and owned by Korean Broadcasting System. The hit series in South Korea has won more than 13 awards. Derek Britt and Ricky Paull Goldin (ex-Gus, Guiding Light; ex-Dean, Another World; ex-Jake, All My Children) of DB Goldline, William J.
