Fatherhood is based on the 2011 memoir Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love by the real-life Matthew Logelin. Sony Pictures was originally set to distribute the film, with an original release date of April 2020, before selling the rights to Netflix in March.

Hart’s first foray into dramatic roles was The Upside, a remake of the 2011 French film Les Intouchables. Many consider this to be among one of his strongest performances to date.

Fatherhood will premiere on Netflix on June 18, just in time for Father’s Day weekend.
