Modern Dads

For years, there have been shows and articles about stay-at-home moms and the challenges we face. I have a husband who has always wondered what it would be like to be a stay-at-home dad. Now there is a show for him.

A&E Network premieres a new reality series following a tight-knit group of stay-at-home fathers balancing their roles as dudes and dads. “Modern Dads premieres Wednesday, August 21 at 10:30PM ET/PT on A&E.

Check out the Modern Dads official page


Down in Austin, Texas there’s a group of guys who are unapologetically loud and riotously funny. They’re like a fraternity, but this time around, all-nighters, babes in your bed, empty bottles and projectile vomit carry a whole new meaning. They’re on 24/7 dad-duty…their dreams used to be fast women and fast cars, but now they only fantasize about using the bathroom without an audience.

Modern Dads” features four stay-at-home dads who may be a little unconventional, but they get the job done. Banning together, their “guys club” is a tribe of suburban, child-rearing dudes who are just trying to do their thing… with a kid (or four) on their hip. A good day at the office for them is just keeping their kids, and their manhood, alive. This new series will follow their exploits as they navigate their lives; juggling the requirements and social expectations of being both a `modern man’ and ‘modern dad’ while their significant others are off at work.

This real life group of friends include Nathan, the newbie dad, an enthusiastic but sometimes overzealous father to his baby boy, Rick, the veteran dad, a MacGyver-type who rules the roost with a strict hands-off approach to parenting his two boys and twin girls, Sean, the cool step-dad and unfiltered comic helping his girlfriend raise two girls and Stone, the single (and looking) dad to three kids including a witty 5 year old girl, who he is not opposed to using as chick bait. They’ve stuck together from hanging around bars as college students to strolling around the neighborhood park as trophy husbands and dads.

Modern Dads” is produced by Sirens Media for A&E Network. Executive producers for Sirens Media are Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton Drescher, Jen Mayer Kulp, Lucilla D’Agostino and Adam Paul. Executive producers for A&E Network are Elaine Frontain Bryant, Lily Neumeyer and Evan Lerner.

    I have heard about this show and I really want to see it! I’ve been a stay at home mom for the last 5 years and think it would be interesting to see the dad perspective!

    I saw the preview of this show a few weeks ago and at first I thought it was going to be a new scripted series. But I’m glad that stay-at-home dads are getting their shine in the spotlight. I think there are a lot of stereotypes out there about stay-at-home dads that this show will prove false.
