BWNG TV, the creators of web-to-TV hit ‘Brothers With No Game‘, have released a brand new online series that aims to challenge the stereotypes surrounding young black fathers.
A Day in the Life of Daddy (DITLOD) follows Kwame, a single Londoner, as he attempts to improve his relationship with his 7 year old daughter following the emergence of another man in her mother’s life. With the conversation about diversity in television thick in the air, DITLOD is an antidote to the common stereotypical image of ‘absent black fathers’ present in the media today.
Leon Mayne, one quarter of BWNG TV says:
“We’re often shown images of young black men shirking their responsibilities when it comes to fatherhood. The rhetoric of ‘useless baby-daddy’ is something that we’ve grown used to, however for many, this isn’t a reality. There are scores of men who embrace fatherhood and are great parents to their children, even when the relationship with the mothers haven’t worked out. Although A Day in the Life of Daddy is a lighthearted, comedic look at what one single father experiences, it highlights the challenges that a man faces when trying to juggle being a good father with moving on in his love life AND co-parenting with an ex. Not easy!”
