Netflix 'Fatherhood': Air time, how to live stream Kevin Hart-starrer
The lead character, a single father, realizes fatherhood is tougher than what most people think it to be
The pandemic has altered life and how we live it in every way possible. It has pushed the entertainment industry to act differently and strategize better if they intended on keeping the revenues coming.
As a result, the OTT platforms began creating fresh content to keep up with the binge-watchers, a crowd that has easily doubled in size since lockdown was put into motion. 'Fatherhood' on Netflix is an adaptation of widowed author Matt Logelin’s searingly honest memoir, in which he documents his time with daughter Maddy and the challenges that come with it. Kevin Hart plays Logelin's role alongside Melody Hurd, who stars as his on-screen daughter Maddy.
Slated for a theatre release at first, 'Fatherhood' premiere date was pushed to January 8, 2021 and then finally June 18, 3 AM ET.
How to watch online
The movie can be streamed on Netflix.
The storyline is simple but gripping. It follows Logeline's journey of being a single father who realizes fatherhood is tougher than what most people think it to be. As he goes about the daily challenges of raising a kid, he rediscovers himself, and in doing so, opens up his heart to a woman for the first time since his wife's passing.
"Choosing to care for Maddy in the ways he knew his wife Liz (Deborah Ayorinde) would’ve wanted, Matt is determined to go at it alone but learns that raising a child — and becoming a great dad — takes a village," the Netflix synopsis reads and adds: "Matt is able to provide Maddy the life of joy, love, and fullness he always wanted for her, no matter how different it turned out to be from what he imagined."
Hart and Hurd will be joined by Alfre Woodard as Marion, Lil Rel Howery as Jordan, DeWanda Wise as Liz Swan, and Frankie R. Faison as Mike. Deborah Ayorinde will play Hart's wife in the film.
Directed by Paul Weitz, 'Fatherhood' has been produced by Marty Bowen, Kevin Hart, David Beaubaire, and Peter Kiernan. Serving as executive producers are Betsy Danbury, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Bryan Smiley, Jaclyn Huntling Swatt, Isaac Klausner, Channing Tatum, and Reid Carolin.
