Astron 6 Team With Guy Maddin And Rachel Talalay For DIVORCED DAD
It's a collision of seemingly disparate but each compellingly odd and wonderful forces of the Canadian film scene with word that the madmen at Astron 6 (Father's Day, The Editor) have teamed up with Guy Maddin (The Saddest Music In The World) and Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl, Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare) to create upcoming web series Divorced Dad.
Divorced Dad is a love letter to the endearingly incompetent cable access television shows created by far from screen-ready small town celebrities during the 1980’s and 90’s. Divorced Dad, a post-marriage professional, hosts a well meaning but disastrously inept self-help talk show intended to help guide newly single fathers through the difficulties and fun of single life. Airing on the first and third weekend of every month, every episode of Divorced Dad derails into chaos at the hands of his inexperienced crew, an inarticulate cohost and a malevolent, faceless producer. As the series progresses, it becomes apparent that Divorced Dad’s life and show have become one homologous, inescapable Lynchian nightmare. Though he might just possibly be trapped in his own personal hell, Divorced Dad is going to make the most of it, bringing you the best damn show he can within the limits of his visitation rights, here on Astron-TV.
