Comedian Bill Burr makes his directorial debut with Old Dads for Netflix, and details of the project have arrived.

Comedians going behind the camera has resulted in films as eclectic as Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade to Jordan Peele’s hugely successful left turn into horror films like Get Out and Us.

Bill Burr is the latest to swap the microphone for moviemaking, with directorial debut Old Dads.

The plot follows Burr’s character, “his middle-aged father, Jack, and his two best friends (Bobby Cannavale and Bokeem Woodbine) who, after selling their company to a millennial, find themselves out of step and behind the times as they hilariously struggle to navigate a changing world of culture, career and fatherhood”.

Katie Aselton, Reign Edwards, Rachael Harris, Miles Robbins and Jackie Tohn also feature.

Burr directed the film from a script he co-wrote with Ben Tishler.

Old Dads will stream on Netflix from the 20th October, we’ll bring you the trailer when it’s released.
