"Modern Dads" greenlit by A&E

Melissa Hayer Published: May 6, 2013

A&E Network has ordered eight episodes of the new nonfiction series “Modern Dads,” from Sirens Media.

Details on “Modern Dads,” provided by A&E, are as follows:

The series will follow a diverse group of stay-at-home dads balancing guy-life with dad-life.

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. They¹re 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. Their wives may bring home the bacon, but these dads have no trouble fryin¹ it up in the pan.

“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 brotherhood 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 manhood; juggling the requirements and social expectations of being both a ‘modern man’ and ‘modern dad.’

“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 David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant, Lily Neumeyer and Evan Lerner.
