About Project Dad

In Project Dad, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Original, the camera follows three celebrity fathers as they put their careers on the sidelines and get to know their children, resulting in a humorous look at the pitfalls and joys of being a father. The show features Donnell Rawlings (comedian, Chappelle’s Show), Daniel Cosgrove (actor, Days of Our Lives), and DJ Skribble (disc jockey, MTV’s TRL).

Project Dad is based on an original, on-going series produced by KBS, the flagship public service broadcaster in South Korea. It is a top-rated show in that country, where more than 100 episodes have aired. The Korean version of the hit series has won more than 13 awards. Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment now has the worldwide rights to the show outside of Korea, China and Turkey.

The series premiered on Discovery Life in November 2016, ran on TLC in January and February 2017, and now airs on Discovery Family. Full episodes are available to watch on APlus.com.
