Published Mar 21, 2016Known for films like Father's Day and The Editor, Canadian horror comedy collective Astron-6 continue to push the envelope. While they're currently working on their first sincere, non-comedic horror film The Void, they certainly haven't lost their batshit crazy sense of humour. In fact, their new web series looks like the group's most ridiculous project yet.
The series is called Divorced Dad, and it looks to combine the classic cable-access talk show trope with Astron-6's signature insanity. That includes plenty of gore, violence and grossness, along with some slapstick humour.
Ultimately, it looks like it's going to be one hell of a new web series, and one that will hopefully find a cult audience right out of the gate.
Here's how they describe the series:
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.
Watch the trailer for Divorced Dad below, and keep an eye on the show's official Facebook page for more information as it becomes available. As of yet, there's no word on when the series will premiere.
