Fox International Channels has launched Single Dads, an original scripted comedy web series on Hulu created by and starring comedy duo Pete Karinen and Brian Sacca of Pete And Brian and NBC.com’s FCU: Fact Checkers Unit.
Single Dads chronicles the misadventures of two single fathers struggling with the responsibility of having kids:
The series features the characters Pete and Brian, who met when they’ve both got kicked out of a parenting class at the local YMCA. They quickly became best friends, bonding over the fact that they both have one-year-olds—Pete Jr. and Theodore—who they are raising without the help of their mothers. Each episode will show them tackling a new task, from changing nappies to going on a “playdate.” They always have the best intentions, but inevitably do something irresponsible or thoughtless.
Attention Span Media, the group behind Streamy Award nominated college mockumentary Dorm Life, is working with Fox as their social media agency and social media producer,much like their work with If I Can Dream, the groundbreaking real-time “post-reality” show created by 19 Entertainment and Simon Fuller (creator and producer of American Idol).
Single Dads is a part of Fox International Channels’ slate which, as reported by Variety last summer, includes Security 7, an animation series about a secret American military base hidden in the Middle East, and Dito, a stop-motion animation series.
The 30 episode series premiered December 21 with new episodes daily.
