Following the success of the film Bad Dad Rehab, TV One is following it up with Bad Dad Rehab: The Next Session.
The original movie features a brand-new cast that includes rapper Anthony “Big Daddy Kane” Hardy as Owen; Lamman Rucker as Mr. Arnold; Blue Kimble as Chauncey; Onye Eme-Akwari as Marshall; Carlo Mendez as Hosea; and Chrystale Wilson as Marjory.
“Being a dad is a layered, yet rich experience. It was awesome to be part of a film that captures the reality of fatherhood which is not easy, but very gratifying,” Big Daddy Kane said in a statement.
Here’s the official description of the film: “Bad Dad Rehab: The Next Session follows the new class of Bad Dads hailing from Jersey City, New Jersey who must confront their personal demons in order to get their act together and become better dads. Hosea (Mendez) is more concerned about being his rebellious son’s best friend than disciplining him. Marshall (Eme-Akwari) works pyramid schemes in his mancave instead of helping his frustrated wife and son. Chaucey (Kimble) holds a grudge against his ex-girlfriend, oblivious that it’s hurting their young daughter. Owen (Hardy) spent thirty years denying his daughter from an affair but now wants to make amends before her impending wedding.”
Juwan Lee directs from a script written by Keronda McKnight. The movie is produced for TV One by Swirl Films with Eric Tomosunas, Keith Neal, Ron Robinson and James Sepplefrick serving as executive producers.
“The film is a fun, entertaining and authentic way to address the struggles and varied realities of fatherhood” said Jason Ryan, executive in charge of production for TV One. “I’m excited to help bring this important story to our audience as we celebrate the men who shaped us this Father’s Day.”
Bad Dad Rehab: The Next Session airs on Father’s Day — Sunday, June 20 at 8 P.M. ET/7C on TV One.
