Zee Café presents new show '$#*! My dad says'
Based on the "$#*! My Dad says twitter account, with over a million followers; this hilarious and heartfelt comedy is the story of a son searching for approval from a standoffish father who's seen it all.« Back
The legendary William Shatner stars in "$#*! My Dada says as Ed, a 72 year old living breathing fountain of wisdom with the pressure of a fire hose.
A thrice divorced ex - doctor and veteran of three wars, Ed hates beating around the bush. And if you on his property after 9 PM without prior notification, chances are he'll greet you with his shotgun.
Ed is a very opinionated. His two adult sons, Henry and Vince, are accustomed to his unsolicited and often politically incorrect rants. When Henry, a struggling writer and blogger, can no longer afford his rent, he is forced to move back in with Ed, which creates new issues in their tricky father-son relationship. As weeks go by Henry is unable to find a job as a writer, mostly due to the lack of good material. He finally lands a job, when during his interview Ed interrupts with an irrational phone call that sparks the interest of the eccentric editor conducting the interview. Henry is ultimately hired, but is forced to continue living with Ed in order to be able to continue to write about his father's unsolicited rants, hence the title '$#*! My Dad Says'.
The show won the award for Favourite New TV Comedy at the 37th People's Choice Award.
