Starz has released the first teaser for “Blunt Talk,” starring Patrick Stewart. From Executive Producer Seth MacFarlane (“Family Guy,” Ted, A Million Ways to Die in the West) and series creator and executive producer Jonathan Ames (“Bored to Death”) comes “Blunt Talk,” a live-action character-driven comedy set in the competitive cable news arena and following a most eccentric TV personality and his crew.
Patrick Stewart (“X-Men” franchise, Ted) stars as Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news. Through the platform of his nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt’s only support is the alcoholic manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles. The series follows the fallout from Blunt’s well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air.
“Blunt Talk” premieres this summer on Starz.
