According to THR, the two actors met during last summer’s San Diego Comic Con for the launch of MyOuterspace.com, and Tapping recounts she joked at the time of the two doing a show together: “Who knew it would come true?,” she said.
Production will begin on four webisodes in late February. Here’s a description of the series:
The Zenoids portrays a family of space-faring Amphibinoid musicians who travel the galaxy performing their musical act, with Shatner and Tapping as a husband-and-wife team trying to keep their superstar dreams alive.
Additionally, Shatner will be asking fans to submit scripts online, with one winning script to be produced as an animated short webisode.
