Astron-6's New Web Series 'Divorced Dad' Finally Arrives
But unfortunately it's currently experiencing some technical difficulties
Published Feb 15, 2018After what feels like an eternity, Canadian horror/comedy collective Astron-6 have finally delivered their latest project Divorced Dad, though not without some unfortunate — though hilariously appropriate — technical difficulties.
After a good year of teasing the new web series, the team that brought us such modern-day Canadian cinema classics as The Editor, The Void and Father's Day briefly premiered their latest project on Valentine's Day via YouTube.
However, the episodes of the show — which models itself after a no-budget cable-access talk show — were quickly pulled from YouTube for violating the service's community guidelines.
Over on the Divorced Dad YouTube page, you are now greeted with the message, "This account has been terminated for violating YouTube's Community Guidelines."
At this point, it's unclear when the show will be back on the air, but stay tuned for updates both here at Exclaim! and/or on the Divorced Dad Facebook page.
UPDATE (2/16, 10 a.m. EST): Astron-6's Conor Sweeney has now explained that the videos were pulled by YouTube over an ISIS joke. You can read our interview with him for further details on what seems to be a pretty messed-up situation over here.
As previously reported, the series was previously described by the Astron-6 team as follows:
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.
