    Date My Dad

    This new sitcom features a widower whose three cute girls help him find a new bride.

    Former professional baseball player Ricky Cooper had the perfect life – until his wife Isabella passed away, leaving him to raise their three daughters alone. Now, three years after Isabella’s deeath, Ricky’s daughters (sassy Mirabel, realistic Elisa, and brainy Gigi), his sexy mother-in-law Rosa, his brother and sister-in-law, and even his employees, all believe it is time for Ricky to start dating again – and even the ghost of Isabella agrees. But when Rosa and the daughters conspire to form their own “Date My Dad” service to find a wife for Ricky, the stage is set for both hugs and hijinks, as the women in his life push the reluctant Ricky toward his own happiness…while Ricky deals with the panic of being pushed into the dating world for the first time in twenty years, and still being the best dad he can be to his girls.

    Date My Dad is a fun series acceptable for the entire family. Though there is occasionally some very mild innuendo (the first episode opens with Rosa coming home early Saturday morning in a cocktail dress, being questioned by Mirabel about “doing the forbidden dance,” and telling Ricky she doesn’t want to “do the walk of shame in front of her granddaughters”), overall the series is both humorous and touching, with sincere moments of love between Ricky and his daughters sprinkled throughout the comedic complications.

    Because of its emphasis on family-friendly values, the Parents Television Council is proud to award Date My Dad with the PTC Seal of Approval®. The PTC recommends this program for viewers over age 10.
