Ames and MacFarlane’s “Blunt Talk” Starring Patrick Stewart Gets First Teaser

One of the more intriguing series to come down the pipeline from Starz has to be Blunt Talk, which has Sir Patrick Stewart take a comedic turn in a series created by Jonathan Ames and executive produced by Seth MacFarlane.

Startz has already ordered two seasons of the series last year, which makes it’s premiere more enticing than it already is. A teaser was just released to further tantalized us all.

Here’s the plot summary from IMDB:

British newscaster Walter Blunt [Patrick Stewart] comes to Los Angeles, intent on conquering the world of American cable TV. Through the platform of a nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Unfortunately, Blunt is constantly harassed by interfering network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, and his numerous ex-wives and children. Blunt must now deal with the fallout from his well-intended but misguided actions, both on and off the air, with only an alcoholic manservant at his side.

So, we’re thinking this falls somewhere in the realm of The Newsroom meets Veep and thus we’ll be looking excitedly for a full trailer, hopefully soon.
