Barry Watson and Raquel Welch are headed to UP. Deadline reports the two will star in the network’s upcoming series Date My Dad.
From Nina Colman, the dramedy stars Watson as Ricky Cooper, a single dad whose daughters try to get him back in the dating game after their mother dies. The cast also includes Zenia Marie Marshall, Lilah Fitzgerald, and Audrey Smallman.
Welch will recur as Cooper’s mother-in-law, Rosa, who steps in to help him raise the girls. Date My Dad is expected to premiere on UP in June.
From UP SVP Original Programming Barbara Fisher:
Barry is a versatile actor that will shine as a single dad and former professional athlete in comedic as well as endearing moments. He’s beloved by the UP audience and will appeal to new viewers who tune in to watch a familiar face. The iconic and legendary Raquel Welch as his saucy and young-at-heart mother-in-law will create the perfect dynamic of witty banter while always keeping family at the center.”
