Scott Perry (Scott) is a loving father of five who has his entire life’s plan thrown into upheaval by an unexpected health scare. After being diagnosed with cancer, he and his wife call on a few of their most trusted friends to step in as back-up dads to help guide and support his growing family – just in case Scott can’t be there to do it himself.
Committed bachelor Anthony Lavelle (Standen) is Scott’s oldest and most loyal friend. Larry Mills (O’Neill) is Scott’s tough-love AA sponsee. Doctor Oliver Post (Richards) is Scott’s dedicated oncologist and his wife’s dearest friend.
Scott’s immediate family includes his wife, Robin (Callies), adult daughter Luly (Weaver), son Theo (Anthony), son JJ (Chapman), and adopted daughter Charlotte (Tran).
Together, this group discovers that there’s more to being a father than anyone could do alone — and more to being a family than they ever thought possible.
Episode #10 — Fight or Flight
Anthony arrives at the storm-ravaged Perry home to find Robin and Theo in peril, and Oliver puts all his medical skills to work when Sage goes into early labor. Meanwhile, the future of the Crab Shack is left hanging in the balance from the storm damage and the Perry kids grapple with the stunning news about Luly. Hilarie Burton and David Walton guest star.
