Watch: Patrick Stewart Goes Wild in ‘Blunt Talk’ Teaser

Starz has released a first-look teaser for its upcoming comedy series “Blunt Talk,” starring Patrick Stewart.

The show is exec produced by Seth MacFarlane and the show’s creator-showrunner Jonathan Ames, as well as Tristram Shapeero (“Community”) and Stephanie Davis (“Bored to Death”).

In the teaser, Stewart plays Walter Blunt, a cable newsman and U.K. transplant on a mission to teach Americans how to think, act and behave. But his wild off-air antics suggest a highly unorthodox teaching style.

Rounding out the cast are Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”), Adrian Scarborough (“The King’s Speech”), Dolly Wells (“Doll & Em”) and Timm Sharp (“Enlightened”). Shapeero will direct the show in addition to his role as executive producer.

Starzr has committed to two seasons of 10 episodes each. “Blunt Talk” will premiere on Starz in this summer.
