$#*! My Dad Says To Air This Fall

1 min read

$#*! My Dad Says, a new show starring Ryan Devlin as the son of a profane and funny father played by William Shatner, has been picked up by CBS and will air on the fall schedule.

Based on a true life son and father, $#*! My Dad Says began life as a Twitter feed begun by the son, Justin Halpern, in 2009.

Halpern tweeted the profane, scathing and often hilarious utterances from his father, and soon found that he had gained a large following. The popularity soon led to a book deal and now to the sitcom featuring Shatner and Devlin as father and son.

A typical fatherly bit of advice (one of the rare non-profane ones) is as follows: “I didn’t say you were ugly. I said your girlfriend is better looking than you, and standing next to her, you look ugly.”

$#*! My Dad Says now has more than a million followers on Halpern’s Twitter account.
