William Shatner has been cast to play the dad in a comedy pilot at CBS based on the the Twitter account Shit My Dad Says (located at twitter.com/shitmydadsays).
It’s going to be tough translating the hilarious Twitter account to television, but signing Shatner to the title role is certainly a great step in that process.
The pilot is executive produced by Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick. The project was originally set up at CBS with a script commitment last November. Locking down the casting of Shatner was enough to get a greenlight for a pilot.
