Twitter TV show to star William Shatner

May 20, 2010

One of the more popular Twitter accounts is @shitmydadsays, with more than 1.3 million followers. The feed is a rambling of quotes from Justin Halpern’s father – and now it’s set to become a CBS sitcom starring Star Trek’s William Shatner.

I’m 29. I live with my 74-year-old dad. He is awesome. I just write down shit that he says.

The amusing quotes makes good entertainment and a collection have just recently been compiled and turned into a book, which is on the New York Times bestseller list.

Tweets include,”A parent’s only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed” and “Stop trying so hard. He doesn’t like you. Jesus, don’t kiss an ass if it’s in the process of sh*tting on you”.

Shatner, who is somewhat of a Tweep himself, is said to be excited to be playing the role of Mr Halpern Snr.

Tentatively titled Bleep My Dad Says, the sitcom is due to pilot on CBS later this year in the U.S.
