Twitter-obsessed TV Show with William Shatner

Are you a Twitter fan, who just happens to be a fan of “Star Trek” and “T. J. Hooker” star William Shatner? If you answered yes, then you might just be interested in the new CBS sitcom titled “S**t MY Dad Says,” which he is due to star in later this year.

According to an article by Dan Goodin at, William will be playing a cranky old guy, whose rants are captured by his Twitter obsessed son with a million followers. The show is actually based on a real-life Twitter feed, which claims over 1.3 million followers.

The “s**tmydadsays” Twitter feed was launched last August by a guy named Justin Helpern, shortly after he went to live with his dad, who appears to never miss an opportunity to deliver patronizing one-liners that are small enough to fit Twitter’s 140-word limit.

William Shatner apparently announced the news via his own Twitter account. Speaking about the new show to The Chicago Sun-Times, Helpern said: I pushed for Mr. Shatner. He’s been fantastic. He’s like my dad in that he says what he wants to say when he wants to say it.”
