Netflix seems to be amping up their dad game lately, especially when it comes to positive representation of black fathers and their families.
Jamie Foxx currently stars in a sitcom based around his experiences raising a daughter, and he’s brought his former In Living Color co-star, David Alan Grier, along for the ride. Now another legendary black comedian is bringing his perspective on fatherhood to the streaming platform.
Kevin Hart stars in, well, Fatherhood, a story about a dad’s journey to be the best dad, and girl dad, he can be. It’s based on the novel Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love by Matthew Logelin.
Hart’s character clearly starts out way over his head, but due to a healthy sense of humor and a lot of love for his kid, he slowly learns the ropes. As we all do.
The movie hits Netflix on June 18th, which is, not so coincidentally, Father’s Day!
