Even though he is approaching 80, there is no sign that William Shatner is slowing down. In fact he is adding more and more to his plate. Today A&E Networks announced that not only are they picking up the Shatner’s Bio Channel talk show for another season, but they have ordered a new series: Shatner’s Aftermath.
Bio doubles down on Shatner
At the ‘upfront’ presentations in New York, A&E announced next season’s slate of series and heading the list of Bio Channel shows was Shatner’s Aftermath. According to THR the new series to be hosted by Shatner "looks at Americans who became overnight household names, such as The Unibomber and Iraq war PFC Jessica Lynch." So far they have ordered six episodes. A&E also announced that Shatner’s Raw Nerve will be returning for another season.
These two Bio Channel shows join Shatner’s other new series, Weird or What, which will be airing on Discovery (see previous story).
And Bill may be getting even more airtime if CBS picks up his new sitcom (Bleep) My Dad Says. Buzz on the pilot has been good. CBS makes their series pick-up announcements on May 19th.
