Council of Dads is making a move before the series even premieres. The series was set to take on a Tuesday time slot, but it is not going to happen now. The series will still premiere in Match following the This Is Us season finale, but it will air on Thursday nights when it returns in April.
The cast of the series includes Sarah Wayne Callies, Clive Standen, Tom Everett Scott, J. August Richards, Blue Chapman, Emjay Anthony, Michele Weaver, Thalia Tran, Steven Silver and Michael O’Neill.
A press release from NBC revealed the following about the new drama:
“Family takes on a different meaning in Council of Dads when Scott Perry, a loving father of five, 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 will premiere on March 24 and return on April 30 in the 8pm time slot.
