Apple TV+ has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the Bryce Dallas Howard documentary Dads, ahead of its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, an individual with knowledge of the project tells TheWrap. Apple’s streaming service is due this fall. Pricing hasn’t been announced.
Here’s how the documentary is described: “Dads is a joyful exploration of contemporary fatherhood. The film draws on the testimonies of famous funnymen such as Judd Apatow, Will Smith, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris, Kenan Thompson, Jimmy Kimmel, and Ken Jeong. Their reflections are combined with portraits of non-celebrity dads from different parts of the world — Brazil, Japan, the United States — who are creating new models of patriarchy.
Dads will premiere in the official documentary selection at TIFF on Monday. Bryce Howard will also interview her own famous father: actor/director Ron Howard.
