Video: Patrick Stewart Is a Boorish, Boozy Blowhard in Starz's Blunt Talk

Patrick Stewart Blunt Talk Trailer

Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Patrick Stewart has a new TV role, and it’s light years away from TNG’s upright Capt. Jean-Luc Picard — see for yourself in the new trailer for Starz’s Blunt Talk.

The promo introduces us to Walter Blunt, a cocaine-snorting, alcohol-swilling, police-attention-getting British journalist bent on civilizing America from behind his cable news desk. He’s loud and opinionated, and he seems to make poor decisions in nearly every aspect of his life. (Exhibit A: What is he doing with those swords?)

The half-hour scripted comedy, conceived by Jonathan Ames (Bored to Death) and executive-produced by Ames and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy), received two-season, straight-to-series order in April.
