Well-timed Apple TV+ documentary ‘Dads’ debuting June 19 ahead of Father’s Day

Apple TV+ will start streaming a new, well-timed documentary about the trials and tribulations of modern-day parenting on June 19, two days ahead of Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21.

Here’s Apple’s description of the show:

‘Dads’ is a heartfelt and humorous documentary that celebrates the joys and challenges of parenting in today’s world. Featuring six extraordinary fathers from across the globe, this film offers a firsthand glimpse into the trials and tribulations of modern-day parenting through revealing interviews, rare home-movie footage, viral videos and hilarious and thoughtful testimonials from some of Hollywood’s funniest celebrities.

Some of the celebrities featured in Dads include:

  • Judd Apatow
  • Jimmy Fallon
  • Neil Patrick Harris
  • Ron Howard
  • Ken Jeong
  • Jimmy Kimmel
  • Hasan Minhaj
  • Conan O’Brien
  • Patton Oswalt
  • Will Smith

“Fathers can be close, distant, absent or anything in between,” Variety wrote about the documentary last September. “Whatever your experience, this film warmly encourages conversations about how to be a better parent”.

From the Variety article:

Conan O’Brien sums up parenthood as ‘this incredible realization that you’re not the most important person in the world.’ Patton Oswalt, who became a single parent after his wife’s death, reflects on how quickly kids grow up: ‘You get the tiniest window and then it’s gone just like that.’ Hasan Minhaj pays tribute to his immigrant father, whose short-term sacrifice was for his family’s long-term gain.

Dads is the feature directorial debut of Bryce Dallas Howard, daughter of filmmaker and actor Ron Howard. She also happens to offer a look at the dads in her own family, including interviews with her late grandfather Rance, her father Ron and her brother Reed.

Here’s what the Apple TV+’s current schedule looks like:
