"Modern Dads" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on A&E that follows a diverse group of stay-at-home dads balancing guy-life with dad-life.

Down in Austin, Texas there's a group of guys who are unapologetically loud and riotously funny. They're like a fraternity, but this time around, all-nighters, babes in your bed, empty bottles and projectile vomit carry a whole new meaning. They're on 24/7 dad-duty ... their dreams used to be fast women and fast cars, but now they only fantasize about using the bathroom without an audience. Their wives may bring home the bacon, but these dads have no trouble fryin' it up in the pan.

The series features four stay-at-home dads who may be a little unconventional, but they get the job done. Banning together, their "guys club" is a brotherhood of suburban, child-rearing dudes who are just trying to do their thing ... with a kid (or four) on their hip. A good day at the office for them is just keeping their kids, and their manhood, alive. This new series will follow their exploits as they navigate manhood; juggling the requirements and social expectations of being both a "modern man" and "modern dad."

This real life group of friends include Nathan Hall, the newbie dad, an enthusiastic but sometimes overzealous father to his baby boy; Rick Lucas, the veteran dad, a MacGyver-type who rules the roost with a strict hands-off approach to parenting his two boys and twin girls; Sean Kent, the cool step-dad and unfiltered comic helping his girlfriend raise two girls; and Stone Slade, the single (and looking) dad to three kids including a witty 5-year-old girl, who he is not opposed to using as chick bait. They've stuck together from hanging around bars as college students to strolling around the neighborhood park as trophy husbands and dads.

"Modern Dads" is produced by Sirens Media for A&E Network. Executive producers for Sirens Media are Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton Drescher, Jen Mayer Kulp, Lucilla D'Agostino and Adam Paul. Executive producers for A&E Network are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant, Lily Neumeyer and Evan Lerner.
