US comedy Blunt Talk, which features Patrick Stewart as a UK talk host working in America, will screen on Stan next month.
There were early rumours the show was partly-inspired by Piers Morgan. The show, which debuted in the US last August drew mixed reviews.
It also features Jacki Weaver as Blunt’s producer-manager, Rosalie Winter.
Walter Blunt (Patrick Stewart) is a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news. Through the platform of his nightly news show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave.
Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives, children of all ages and his own well-intentioned – but sometimes misguided – decisions, Blunt’s only support is in the form of the heavy-drinking, devoted manservant he transplanted from the U.K., Harry (Adrian Scarborough) and Rosalie (Jacki Weaver), Blunt’s tough and motherly producer-manager.
Thursday May 19 on Stan.
