There is a lot of love to go around on Council of Dads.
Council of Dads is a new drama coming to NBC. There is a beautiful family, a gorgeous dropback, and faithful friends. Despite all of that, no one is immune to the threat of disease. Such is the case for the Perry family on Council of Dads. Husband and father Scott Perry has received a cancer diagnosis. He responds by planning for fatherly involvement for his family in the event that he is no longer there.
The premise is new to television but not the literary world. Bestselling author Bruce Feiler wrote Council of Dads based on his personal experience. The series draws inspiration from the author’s decision to select important men in his life to serve on a council. Said council would collaboratively step in as the role of father to his children should he not survive a deadly form of cancer.
The NBC drama centers on the Perry family. Robin and Scott Perry are raising 4 children ranging in from elementary school aged to young adult.
Sarah Wayne Callies who has a dedicated fandom from her work on Prison Break, The Walking Dead, Colony and more plays the role of Robin Perry who is blindsided by her husband’s cancer diagnosis. Clive Standen, J. August Richards and Michael O’Neill bring a wealth of love and talents to the roles of the “councilmen” Anthony, Oliver and Larry.
The story takes place in Savannah, GA and is filmed on location there. Production has reportedly utilized The Crab Shack, a local fixture on Tybee Island.
