A detailed description of $#*! My Dad Says and a photo of William Shatner who plays the opinionated father have been released.
$#*! My Dad Says, which will air this fall on CBS on Thursdays from 8:30-9:00 PM, is based on a popular Twitter feed of Justin Halpern, who chronicles his father’s profane and often opinionated utterances.
“Nobody is immune from Ed’s rants, including his sons, Henry, a struggling writer-turned-unpaid blogger; and Vince (Will Sasso), the meek half of his husband/wife real estate duo with domineering Kathleen (Nicole Sullivan).
“When Henry finds he can no longer afford to pay rent to his pretty roommate — and secret admirer — Sam (Stephanie Lemelin), Ed reveals a soft spot and invites Henry to move in with him. Henry agrees, knowing that the verbal assault will not abate and now there will be no escape. Describing their father/son relationship is tricky – but Ed will easily come up with a few choice words.”
