In just a month William Shatner’s new talk show Shatner’s Raw Nerve finally premieres on the Bio Channel. The Bio Channel has now launched, which includes some clips from his interview with Leonard Nimoy. [UPDATE: Bio has sent over some exclusive images of Shatner and Nimoy]. Plus The Shatner Project has a new video of Bill talking about some of his classic Shat Fu fight moves.
Raw Nerve coming soon
Raw Nerve premieres on the Bio Channel on Tuesday, December 2nd at 10PM. In each show, Shatner will get up close and personal with a different celebrity guest and try and touch a ‘raw nerve.’ Here is how the official press release words it:
In each 30-minute episode of “Shatner’s Raw Nerve,” Shatner will attempt to probe his guest’s most fascinating and sensitive subjects and touch upon a “Raw Nerve.” Part of the fun will be waiting for the “Raw Nerve” moments that you know will be coming. Shatner will explore life’s most intriguing questions, and unearth stories that are most surprising, revealing, funny, touching or bizarre. The show will be unpredictable, allowing Shatner to work his magic on each guest in his own unique way.
Mind Meld 2?
Each weekly show of Raw Nerve will feature an interview with a single celeb. The first ones up will be Tim Allen, Drew Carey, Jimmy Kimmel, Howie Mandel, Judge Judy, Valerie Bertinelli, Kelsey Grammer, Jenna Jameson, Jon Voight and (most importantly to Trek fans) Leonard Nimoy. Leonard Nimoy told TrekMovie that he and Bill had a "new and special and rich" conversation. He agreed that the Shatner Nimoy Raw Nerve will be like a follow up to their 2001 ‘Mind Meld’ DVD, and Nimoy noted that they "touched on subjects that were never touched on before."
