|The Dads and their children on the set of AUSTRALIA Channel 9’s new drama, House Husbands
It’s been a while since I’ve seen a trailer about a new show and gotten goosebumps because it looked so authentic & touching. Would you believe that this heartwarming show is about four families where the man is the primary caregiver in raising the children?
House Husbands! Only in Australia! They’ve created a new dramedy (that aired on Sept 2 – father’s day in Australia) that paints dad as loving, nurturing, and hands-on as well as a loving partner to their wives. Refreshing to see the that the overarching goal here is not to throw dad under the bus for shits & giggles. Check out the clip & let us know what you think. Would this show be successful in the U.S.? (reads: would you watch it?) Well, we read that the new drama series, House Husbands, set a ratings record as the NUMBER ONE new Australia drama launched on that day with nearly 1.4 million viewers! Ironic, because about two years ago there was an awful show titled “House Husbands of Hollywood” – absolutely sucked! Perhaps, if the West Coast version took a page out of Australia’s book, we might have a “House Husbands of NYC” that portrays nurturing, capable, and confident dads….that would star the crew from the NYC Dads Group.
Here is the show description from the channel Nine Network Australia website:
