A few months ago, CBS announced they planned to make yet another miserable sitcom, this one based on the Twitter account ShitMyDadSays. I naturally assumed Jerry Stiller would reprise his long-running crazy, screaming dad shtick in a third series, but no, the network has gone in a different direction: the stars!*
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting William Shatner will play the part of the shit-saying dad in the multi-camera series. Thus far only a pilot has been ordered, but I have a strong feeling CBS will be picking this one up. God knows we need something to fill the void once the network's star chubby Half-Man officially becomes just a third man.
*William Shatner starred in a popular television series set in space.
