Bio Channel Exposes William Shatner's 'Raw Nerve'

Emmy winner and popular talk show guest William Shatner will turn host when the interview series "Shatner's Raw Nerve" premieres later this summer.

Bio Channel announced Wednesday (July 9) that "Shatner's Raw Nerve" will premiere on Tuesday, Aug. 19 at 10 p.m. ET.

Among Shatner's earliest guests will be none other than the actor's "Star Trek" colleague Leonard Nimoy. Other promised early guests include John Voight, Jimmy Kimmel, Judge Judy, Jenna Jameson, Leonard Nimoy, Kelsey Grammer and Valerie Bertinelli.

The release for the show promises that Shatner will probe his guests' most sensitive subjects, exposing that eponymous "Raw Nerve" and warns that "the show will be unpredictable, allowing Shatner to work his magic on each guest in his own unique way."

"Shatner's Raw Nerve" is produced by Scott Sternberg Productions.

Other projects on the development slate announced to reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour included "The Chris Isaak Hour" (a mostly self-explanatory musical-themed talk show), "Female Forces" (like "COPS," only with women) and "Why I Ran" (like "COPS," only focusing on the people who run).
