"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane and "Bored To Death" creator Jonathan Ames have teamed for a new live-action comedy series, "Blunt Talk," which just received a two-season order from Starz. The best part? It'll be the return of Patrick Stewart to series TV.
In the series, Stewart stars as Walter Blunt, the host of an American cable news interview show through which the British-born Blunt hopes to educate the unwashed masses of the United States in how to live. Of course, his own life is a mess.
Ames will serve as show runner of the series, which will air its first 10-episode season in 2015.
Stewart and MacFarlane, who are also producers on the series, have worked together many times. The "Star Trek: The Next Generation" star has voiced many different characters on MacFarlane's animated series "Family Guy" and "American Dad" and was the narrator of his live-action film "Ted."
