“Dads”: our documentary on the modern role of a father

Streaming on Apple TV+ from June 19th, we’re proud to partner with Imagine Documentaries on “Dads”: a powerful new feature documentary from director/producer Bryce Dallas Howard and also produced by her dad, Ron Howard, and Brian Grazer, Justin Wilkes, Michael Rosenberg, and Walter Matteson.

Just in time for Father’s Day.


It’s a role as old as time. But times have changed, and so have our perceptions of what it means to be a dad.

“Dads” is a heartfelt and humorous documentary that celebrates the joys and challenges of parenting in today’s world. Featuring six extraordinary fathers from across the globe, this film offers a firsthand glimpse into the trials and tribulations of modern-day parenting through revealing interviews, rare home-movie footage, viral videos, and hilarious and thoughtful testimonials from some of Hollywood’s funniest celebrity comedians, including Judd Apatow, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris, Ron Howard, Ken Jeong, Jimmy Kimmel, Hasan Minhaj, Conan O'Brien, Patton Oswalt, Will Smith, and Kenan Thompson. Making her feature directorial debut, Bryce Dallas Howard also offers an intimate look at the dads in her own family, including remarkable interviews with her late grandfather Rance, her father Ron and her brother Reed.

Partnering on this film is part of our global effort to support dads everywhere and normalize them as caregivers. A percentage of Dove Men+Care’s profits from the film will support our Paternity Leave Fund, raising awareness of the importance of paternity leave – and giving fathers everywhere their chance to step into the role of a lifetime from day one.

Our film offers priceless tips for new dads and relatable experiences for any expert father. Story telling and anecdotes bring to life the joy and surprises of fatherhood. From all the memories and moments shared, it’s clear: anyone can be a father, but it takes care to be a dad.
