Patrick Stewart Will Return to Television

Although we’ll probably never stop remembering him best as Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Patrick Stewart has been many people since the last TNG film, Star Trek: Nemesis, in 2002.

Most recently, Stewart has been starring with Ian McKellen in Waiting for Godot and No Man’s Land on Broadway. And, of course, he played Charles Xavier in a whole slew of X-Men movies, while American Dad! fans have been digging him deeply as police academy chief Avery Bullock.

Fans will be pleased to note that the STARZ network has just given the order for the first two seasons of Blunt Talk. Stewart will star and co-produce. From
Blunt Talk, set to debut in 2015, will center on Walter Blunt (Stewart), a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news. Via his nightly L.A.-based interview show, Blunt aims to share his wisdom and guidance as to how Americans should live, think and behave. Meanwhile, he has only his alcoholic manservant, who came over with him from the U.K., to help him contend with a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages. Each episode, according to a STARZ press release, will follow the fallout from Blunt’s well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air.
