Plot Synopsis

Inspired by Bruce Feiler's book of the same name, COUNCIL OF DADS is a one-hour scripted series that centers on Scott Perry, a loving father of five, who has his entire life's plan thrown into upheaval by an unexpected health scare. He calls on a few of his most trusted friends to step in as back-up dads to help guide and support his growing family - just in case he ever can't be there to do it himself. There's Anthony, Scott's oldest and most loyal friend; Larry, his tough-love AA sponsee; and Oliver, his dedicated doctor and wife's dearest friend. Together, they discover that there's more to being a father than anyone could do alone -- and more to being a family than they ever thought possible. COUNCIL OF DADS premieres on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 10pm and then moves to its regular timeslot -- Thursdays at 8pm -- one month later, beginning April 30.
