Star World Premiere HD to mark Fathers’ Day with special programmes
MUMBAI: Star World Premiere HD plans to air what it calls “daddy friendly” shows meant for the entire family to mark Fathers’ Day on Sunday, 19 June.
First in line is ‘The Goldbergs’ which will be aired on Star World Premiere HD at 8 pm. Jeff of ‘The Goldbergs’ is the gruff, somewhat asocial patriarch of The Goldbergs family. Unlike Beverly, his wife, he is realistic about his children’s abilities and believes she smothers them too much.
Jeff has worked full-time since his teenage years, and wants his children to learn how to fend for themselves. He runs his father-in-law’s furniture business, loves sports, and is often seen lounging in front of his TV without wearing pants.
Another show which will be aired at 8:30 pm is ‘Grandfathered’, which features John Stamos.
Stamos is the actor who became widely popular as the unconventional, cool and protective Uncle Jesse to three kids – DJ, Stephanie and Michelle on the adorably funny family show ‘Full House’.
Stamos now features as the sexy, yet clueless and adorable father and grandfather, Jimmy, on the rib-tickling TV series ‘Grandfathered’.
The show follows Jimmy’s life as the self-absorbed, career obsessed, successful 50-year- old restaurateur who determines to lead a life of a partying bachelor after his recent divorce.
However, when he discovers that he has both a son and a granddaughter, he tries to turn his life around into becoming responsible and dependable after his child and grandchild melt away his tough, sturdy exterior to reveal his soft as well as caring heart.
Slotted as the 9 pm show is ‘Black-ish’ which features Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson, the head of the Johnson family, who is a content man with a job as a top ad executive, with a beautiful doctor wife – Rainbow and four great kids – Zoey, Andre Junior, Jack and Diane. The show follows his adventure as he increasingly gets concerned with his children losing their cultural identity.
Next on the list is the highly acclaimed family drama series ‘Togetherness’ to be aired at 10 pm, which features Brett Pierson, a dad and a sound editor who tries his best to do right by his daughter Abbie while rededicating his life to his family and work.
Last on the list is ‘Family Guy’ which will be aired at 11 pm. It features Peter Griffin as the quintessentially funny and charmingly clueless patriarch of the Griffin family.
The show follows the adventures of Peter as he tries to do the right thing for his assorted family of two teenagers – Meg and Chris, his stay-at-home wife Lois, their diabolical infant son Stewie and a smart, witty, sarcastic and English-speaking anthropomorphic dog called Brian.
