A&E Orders Reality Series ‘Modern Dads’


Show will explore what it's like to be a modern, stay-at-home dad

Fatherhood has been a hot topic in the scripted space, from Fox’s series order of “Dads” from Seth MacFarlane to NBC’s Jimmy Fallon comedy “Guys With Kids.”

Now, the paternal vibe has leaked over to the reality realm, with A&E greenlighting series “Modern Dads.”

The unscripted skein from Sirens Media follows a diverse group of stay-at-home fathers who try to balance their “guy life” with “dad life.”

A&E has ordered eight half-hour episodes of “Modern Dads.” Show has begun lensing in Austin, Texas.

Exec producers for Sirens are Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton Drescher, Jen Mayer Kulp, Lucilla D’Agostino and Adam Paul. For A&E, David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant, Lily Neumeyer and Evan Lerner are exec producing.
