"Guys with Kids" is a new comedy from Emmy Award-winning executive producer Jimmy Fallon about three thirty-something dads who try to hold on to their youth as they face the responsibilities of having kids. Thankfully, Gary (Anthony Anderson, “Law & Order”), Chris (Jesse Bradford, “The West Wing”) and Nick (Zach Cregger, “Friends with Benefits”) have each other to help navigate the highs and lows of fatherhood -- while still trying desperately to remain dudes.
Balancing work or staying at home, happily married or happily divorced, taking care of the “littles,” while maintaining a social life is a daily challenge. Whether it’s hosing down their babies in the kitchen sink or hitting the bar strapped with “babybjörns,” these guys are taking on fatherhood in ways no one has ever seen before. Nick and Gary’s wives -- Emily (Jamie-Lynn Sigler, “The Sopranos”) and Marny (Tempestt Bledsoe, “The Cosby Show”)--as well as Chris’s ex-wife Sheila (Erinn Hayes “Children’s Hospital)--also offer their own parenting advice.
Dads today are more involved in their kids' lives than ever, and these guys are no exception. No tantrum is too loud, no diaper is too dirty -- Nick, Chris and Gary are up to the challenge.
Joining Fallon (“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”) as executive producers/creators are Charlie Grandy (NBC’s “The Office”) and Amy Ozols (“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”); executive producers are Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz (“Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place,” “American Dad”). Emmy-nominated director Scott Ellis (“Modern Family,” “30 Rock”) is the director.
