‘Bad Dad Rehab’ tells the story of fathers enrolled in daddy rehab for their parenting shortcomings. While the title of this TV One original gives off negative vibes, the concept of the film is really submerged with positive messages. The film stars  Malik Yoba (NY Undercover), Robert Ri’chard (Chocolate City, One on One, Cousin Skeeter), Rob Riley (Hit the Floor, The Bourne Legacy), Wesley Jonathan (Soul Man, Crossover, City Guys) and Kandi Burruss (Xscape, Houswives of Atlanta).
