One of this upcoming TV season’s most intriguing new shows is Showtime’s Blunt Talk. Not only does it have Seth MacFarlane and Jonathan Ames coming together to make a show about a Brit trying to take on American cable news, but Patrick Stewart is starring.

To make matters more intriguing, the entire cast will now include Jackie Weaver, Ed Begley Jr., Adian Scarborough, Mary Holland, Romany Malco, and Karan Soni

There are so many different elements at work here, with the fantastic people in front of and behind the camera, but this could very well be a “Veep” of cable news.
