Captain Kirk is heading back to TV – and this time, he’s got a comedy series

William Shatner, the Priceline Negotiator and somber late-night performer of such cheesy classics as “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” will star this fall in a CBS comedy. In the show, whose title hasn’t been made public yet, Shatner will star as the father of a young guy who amasses more than a million followers on Twitter by tweeting Shatner’s musings, according to Yahoo! News.

The storyline is based on a real-life twitter account (@shitmydadsays) that’s built 1.3 million followers. The account is run by Justin Halpern, 29, who simply writes the sayings of his 74-year-old father. “He is awesome,” Justin says. Most of the tweets have a few X-rated words in them.

Shatner, who starred as Captain Kirk in the legendary TV series Star Trek, made a name for himself in the years succeeding following the show by morphing into a tongue-in-cheek performer who did everything from ‘70s-themed commercials to guest-host gigs at wrestling matches. At the same time, he continued his TV career with the cop drama T.J. Hooker, as well as The Practice and Boston Legal.

According to Yahoo!, the series is one of six new ones from CBS, including a Las Vegas legal-related series and a comedy about a couple who meet in a support group for overeaters. (Yahoo! News)

    All I think of when I see Shatner is Priceline! Do you think he’ll stop his contract with them once the show is on?
