The casting of Shatner lifts the contingency on CBS’ multicamera family comedy project based on the Twitter account, which has enlisted more than 1.16 million followers since launching in August and has made its creator, Justin Halpern, an Internet star.
The pilot, executive produced by “Will & Grace” creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, was originally set up at CBS with a script commitment in November. Now, with Shatner on board, it has been greenlighted to pilot. [THR, via Screen Junkies]
Obviously, this is awesome. The world is a richer place with more Shatner. That’s why I put so many Shatners in the Photoshop above. I call it… “Shatkkake.” I expect it to bring in some new readers via Google search.
