1 min read

A detailed description of $#*! My Dad Says and a photo of William Shatner who plays the opinionated father have been released.

$#*! My Dad Says, which will air this fall on CBS on Thursdays from 8:30-9:00 PM, is based on a popular Twitter feed of Justin Halpern, who chronicles his father’s profane and often opinionated utterances.

Emmy Award winner Shatner plays Ed Goodson, “a forthright and opinionated dad who relishes expressing his unsolicited and often wildly politically incorrect observations to anyone within earshot.

“Nobody is immune from Ed’s rants, including his sons, Henry, a struggling writer-turned-unpaid blogger; and Vince (Will Sasso), the meek half of his husband/wife real estate duo with domineering Kathleen (Nicole Sullivan).

“When Henry finds he can no longer afford to pay rent to his pretty roommate — and secret admirer — Sam (Stephanie Lemelin), Ed reveals a soft spot and invites Henry to move in with him. Henry agrees, knowing that the verbal assault will not abate and now there will be no escape. Describing their father/son relationship is tricky – but Ed will easily come up with a few choice words.”

“Emmy Award winners David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are executive producers. Emmy Award winner James Burrows directed.”
