You may not be aware, but there is a Twitter feed known as Shit My Dad Says, created and curated by Justin Halpern, a 29 year old man who moved back in with his parents last year and has since recorded the wonderfully blunt musings of his father for Internet posterity.
Well, CBS has okayed the making of a pilot to a proposed sitcom based on Shit My Dad Says, to be produced by the creators of Will & Grace. Yes, someone is making a family sitcom out of a genuinely funny but frequently profane Twitter feed. Got that?
William Shatner has been cast in the role of the titular Dad, and now we’re really not sure how to feel about it.
