It will air 8.30pm Sundays from September 2 on Nine.
House Husbands is a 10 part series, starring Gary Sweet (Rescue Special Ops) as Lewis, Rhys Muldoon (Lockie Leonard) as Mark, Gyton Grantley (Underbelly) as Kane, Firass Dirani (Underbelly: Golden Mile) as Justin, Julia Morris (Celebrity Apprentice) as Gemma, Anna McGahan (Underbelly: Razor) as Lucy and Natalie Saleeba (Winners and Losers) as Abi.

Warm, funny and entertaining, House Husbands gives a real perspective on the way we live today from four modern families with one thing in common: the men are in charge of raising the kids.
“House Husbands is a fresh and dynamic look at Australian family life with a very modern twist,” says Michael Healy, Nine’s Director of Television.
“Audiences will fall in love with our characters as they deal with the challenges of raising families in today’s hectic world.”
House Husbands was created by Ellie Beaumont and Drew Proffitt and will be produced by Sue Seeary (Slide) and Drew Proffitt (Lockie Leonard).
The series will be directed by Geoff Bennett (The Great Mint Swindle) and Shirley Barrett (Wild Boys, Offspring), with Nine’s Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan plus Playmaker’s David Maher and David Taylor as executive producers.
“The timing feels right for a funny and honest Aussie drama that lifts the lid on what stay-at-home dads actually get up to. We are thrilled to be producing this series for Nine,” says Playmaker’s David Maher.
