Shatner reads tweets from @shitmydadsays
As we reported a couple of weeks back, William Shatner has been cast in the new sitcom, Sh*t My Dad Says, which seems to be a modern-day Sanford and Son spawned from the popular Twitter account @shitmydadsays. Now here is a video from the Shorty Awards with Bill reading some of his favorite tweets.
Free tickets to pilot taping of Sh*t My Dad Says
The pilot for Sh*t My Dad Says will be taping on March 29th and March 30th at Warner Brothers in Burbank. You can get tickets to the taping at audiencesunlimited.com. Note, for WB shows you need to set the Quantity to 1, but you can order multiple tickets you just have to resubmit the form.
Shatner Launches new Social Networking Site
William Shatner has added yet another facet to his media empire, with the launch of Myouterspace.com, a new social network for sci-fi fans "with a passion for the arts." The site is divided into specialties (animation, acting, writing, gaming, production, and music) each with its own "Planet". Plus their are a number of “starships” for specific projects, which will recruit talent from the different planets. It’s a little complicated but the site is boasting that it will bring creative people together to build new projects, all under the watchful eye of The Shat. .
Another Trek connection is that the ship and planet art was done by veteran Star Trek designer John Eaves. Even if you aren’t interested, you should at least check out the cheesy intro video from Shatner.
