This new series from A&E follows four fathers in Austin, Texas as they grapple with the challenges and revel in the joys of parenthood. There’s professional photographer Nathan, who, in looking after his son Cormac has to guard against his own overprotective instincts; Rick, the self-proclaimed “McGyver of dads” and father of four; Sean, who puts an onus on humor and play in his parenting style; and style-savvy single parent Stone. To launch the series in the U.S., A&E gave it a heck of a lead-in – the second episode of the new season of Duck Dynasty – and that should serve to introduce and perhaps endear these modern dads to America.
