New San Francisco-produced Show about Dads That Cook Hits the Entertainment Market

Share Article

Dads That Cook continues its mission to highlight simple, healthy, family-oriented cooking around the country after meeting its $50,000 Kickstarter goal.

You don't often get a chance to be a part of a show that brings a completely new twist to what I would call an over-saturated game.

Women have taken center stage in the kitchen as long as anyone can remember, but in recent years, men have been stepping up to the plate in another rising great American pastime: cooking. Jason Glover, a modern dad, family chef extraordinaire and comedian, has been doing the majority of the family cooking ever since his son was born 12 years ago. He’s now on a mission to meet regular dads just like him from around the country and highlight their amazing family recipes on his new show, Dads That Cook.

“Spending time in the kitchen with my son and cooking for my family has really bonded us together,” Glover said. “That’s what inspired me to start this project.”

The show highlights regular dads who use their self-taught culinary skills to cook incredible meals for their families. Dads That Cook aims to promote healthy cooking, simple recipes, educating children, and creating a positive family dynamic by bringing the family back to the dinner table. This is a specific and relatively untapped market, and director Addison Kavish is excited to be working on a show with so much potential.

"When Jason approached me about working on the show, I was shocked that no one had thought of the idea before,” Kavish said. “You don't often get a chance to be a part of a show that brings a completely new twist to what I would call an over-saturated genre."

Dads That Cook just finished raising over $50,000 through a Kickstarter campaign to aid in funding for the show’s first season. Season one will include 13 episodes featuring dads from the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding regions, using the tagline “No experts, just good cooking” to draw a national fan-base.

Dads That Cook is currently seeking a spot on a number of network distributors.
