“At 43, Feiler, the father of two young daughters, learned he had a life-threatening tumor in his left leg,” a press launch reads. “Confronting the possibility that he may not be around to help his girls grow up, he reached out to six men from all passages in his life and asked them to be present through the passages in his daughters’ lives. And he called this group of men the ‘The Council of Dads.'”
According to Deadline, the collection is predicated on Bruce’s life, however the premise is barely completely different. In the present, the dad (performed by Tom Everett Scott) is a father to 5 kids one of whom is transgender and passes away from his sickness early in the collection. Happily for his children, they’re surrounded by a group of males who step up in his absence.
