Firass Dirani (Nick/Bowen, Mystic Force) rebounded from the cancellation of "The Straits," with the family drama "House Husbands," where he stars as Justin, a disgraced and booted football player struggling to maintain a relationship with his three young children, as their mother (shacked up with Justin's ex-agent) fights to get full custody. Justin meets three fellow fathers, Mark, Lewis & Kane, at their kids' first day of school and Lewis draws Justin in, recognizing him as a sports star. The men bond quickly when their children end up hijacking a school bus. Justin springs into action, getting aboard the bus and stopping it safely. The act brings more problems for him as he doesn't have a license, leading the police to get involved, giving his ex more ammunition to use against him in the custody fight, especially after he gets bashed for trying to stop a domestic disturbance outside the bar where he works as a bouncer. Justin finds a friend in Lucy, a bartender there who covers for him so he won't lose his job. Lucy is later revealed to be Lewis' daughter. Justin gets an offer to join another team out of state by his former agent, just to get rid of him, but he knows it will force him to break ties with his kids. After being confronted by the school's assistant principal, the quartet of dads set out to make things right by finding the principal who was medicated after the incident and went missing on Kane's watch. Justin helps track her down and when his sons herald him as a hero with a drawing of him saving the bus, Justin decides to refuse the new contract and stay in town for his kids. A full zip from the first episode is available below. "House Husbands" was the highest rated drama this year in Australia and has been renewed for a second season.
