Here’s the network’s brief description of Council of Dads:
When Scott, a loving father of four, has his entire life’s plan thrown into upheaval by a cancer diagnosis, he calls on a few of his closest allies to step in as back-up dads for every stage of his growing family’s life. Scott assembles a trusted group of role models that includes Anthony, his oldest friend; Larry, his AA sponsor; and Oliver, his surgeon and best friend to his wife, Robin. These men agree to devote themselves to supporting and guiding Scott’s amazing family through all the triumphs and challenges life has to offer – just in case he ever can’t be there to do so himself.
The cast 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.

I look forward to seeing more of this program. One of the things some will be how a family of many traits in the family unit. Gay couple, child gender change g
uess what it is out there and people need to learn from this program how people deal with these issues. Everyone will have their own opinion and I am for that but lets not be narrowed minded.
I really am hoping that this show returns to tv.
Gee. Sounds like a serial copy of A Million Little Things. If imitation is the greatest form of flattery than Great but I’m saying by experience that imitation is the cheapest form of Hollywood thoughtless non-original coattail riding. Just go look at all the really crappy medical shows on TV with similar (or the same) character names. No original writers, Cheap copied acting, no problem, just pilot, cancel, pilot, cancel, repeat repeat repeat.
