Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals is an 8 hour docu-series following the father and daughter acting dynasty as they reclaim their relationship after over 25 years of estrangement. Ryan and Tatum find themselves in family therapy, where deep and complex resentments surface. Tatum's anger centers around her sense of abandonment by Ryan, his volatile temper, and his oblivious attitude to her new sobriety. Ryan's bitterness is focused on his daughter's inability to accept his devotion to Farrah Fawcett, and the tell-all autobiography that Tatum wrote.
Through all the humor and heartache, a new understanding is delicately built, and they re-kindle the dynamic that made them Hollywood darlings. Through this intimate expose of a famous family's dysfunction, we watch the O'Neals' last chance for reconciliation.
