Showtime Celebrates Father's Day


Showtime will recognize Father's Day with documentary We Are Dad and three intertwined vignettes that make up Fathers and Sons.

We Are Dad, which will air Sunday, June 19 at 7 p.m. (EST/PST), is the story of partners Steve Lofton and Roger Croteau, who were deemed unfit by the state of Florida to adopt the five children they had raised since birth even though they were viewed as capable foster parents for the unwanted children who were born HIV-positive.

And Fathers and Sons, presented in the form of three intertwined vignettes, was written and directed by three different filmmakers: Robert Spera, Rodrigo Garcia and Jared Rappaport. It portrays the lives of three families residing on the same street in a suburban neighborhood over a span of more than 30 years and across multiple generations. It will air at 8 p.m.
