William Shatner to star as dad in new CBS comedy
NEW YORK (AP) -- William Shatner will star in his first sitcom on CBS next season.
CBS has given the green light to a show on which the son of Shatner's character has more than a million followers to a Twitter account where he writes down his father's musings.
A person familiar with the development process who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to talk about CBS' schedule says the Shatner series is among six new ones the network will add next season. The shows include a spinoff to the FBI profilers drama "Criminal Minds" and a remake of the 1970s police series "Hawaii Five-0."
CBS also is ordering a comedy about a couple who meet in a support group for overeaters, a cop drama with Tom Selleck and a Las Vegas-based legal series.
