Project Dad follows Donnell Rawlings (comedian, Chappelle’s Show), Daniel Cosgrove (actor, Days of our Lives, All My Children, Guiding Light, As the World Turns), and DJ Skribble (world-ranked disc jockey, MTV’s TRL) as they’re left alone with their kids while their partners leave home for days. The series turns the camera on these three busy celebrity 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.”
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 (All My Children, Guiding Light) of DB Goldline, William J. Rouhana, Jr. of Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment, and EunHui Jong of Critical Density Media, LLC are the series Executive Producers. Populus Brands manages the network agreement with Discovery Communications and oversees partnerships, media sponsorships, and trade out sales for the series.
