Date My Dad is a new 10-episode dramedy series from UPtv staring Barry Watson (7th Heaven, Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl) as Ricky Parker. Once a pro baseball player, Ricky is now a single father raising his 3 daughters after the love of his life passed away.

Three years later, Ricky is now 40 years old and his girls decide it’s time for him to get back into the dating world after being out of the game for 2 decades. Despite how difficult the journey will be, Ricky’s daughters will be there guide him in the right direction.
