Sir Patrick Stewart is back. Everybody’s favorite starship Captain (maybe not everybody, but definitely mine) and the best Marvel superhero in a wheelchair (that can’t be argued) is starring in a new comedy series called Blunt Talk set to air on Starz this August. Blunt Talk centers around a British newscaster who heads out to LA to host holier-than-thou talk show. Behind the scenes his life is a mess and his band of misfit co-workers are equally screwed up.
Patrick Stewart’s return to television looks extremely promising and seeing this comedic side of him is refreshing. This featurette also gives us a nice peek at the team dynamic surrounding Stewart, which looks hilarious as well.
I think Blunt Talk has a lot of potential and I’m excited to see what Starz has to offer. Take a look.
