Director Statement

We Are Fathers is an ode to dads fumbling through it out there everywhere. It was born out of a truth to help a friend laugh at his life when he had little to be happy about and my need to create something in my life when there was little to be inspired about. And if we learned one thing while filming this series, it's too never work with your own children like we did, better to work with other people's children that will listen to you. We hope you enjoy our series and now more than ever we believe it is important for diverse voices to tell funny stories.
