William Shatner to Star in 'S--- My Dad Says' Pilot for CBS

William Shatner is set to star in a new pilot on CBS based on the Twitter account “S— My Dad Says”.

The story is based on a Twitter feed by Justin Halpern, a 29-year-old who moved back in with his parents and documented the comments his 73-year-old dad made throughout the day, according to THR. Justin co-wrote the script for the pilot!

William, 78, will play Justin‘s father in the pilot, which has Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick serving as executive producers.
