While Daniel Cosgrove will be wrapping up his second run as Aiden Jennings on Days of our Lives shortly, the actor is about to star in a new TV series entitled Project Dad executive produced by none other than former soap star, Ricky Paull Goldin (Ex-AW, GL, AMC, and B&B).
Project Dad, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Original follows three celebrity dads as they step out of the spotlight and into the role of “mom” for 48 hours. The series premieres on Discovery Life on November 1 at 7:00 p.m.
The Dad’s Donnell Rawlings (comedian, Chappelle’s Show), Daniel Cosgrove (actor, Days of Our Lives), and DJ Skribble (world-ranked disc jockey, MTV’s TRL) are left alone with their kids while their partners leave home for a few days. The series turns the camera on these three busy celebrity dads as they try to put their careers to the side and get to know their children. The dads struggle to balance caring for a home, parenting and pursuing a full-time career — on their own.
“Project Dad will have viewers laughing, crying and relishing in the real life moments these dads have with their children,” said William J. Rouhana, Jr., executive chairman of Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. “The show adds to our library of inspirational and entertaining content, and we expect the show to resonate with all audiences. This is our second television series to air on a cable network in just two years, and we expect more to follow.
The concept of the series is based on the hit international series Return of Superman that was originally broadcast and owned by Korean Broadcasting System. The hit series in South Korea has won more than 13 awards.
Ricky Paull Goldin along with Derek Britt of DB Goldline, William J. Rouhana, Jr. of Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment, and EunHui Jong of Critical Density Media, LLC are the series Executive Producers. Populus Brands manages the network agreement with Discovery Communications and oversees partnerships, media sponsorships, and trade out sales for the series. The series will also air next year on TLC on January 5 at 5 p.m.
