William Shatner is Getting His Own Interview Show on Biography

For those fans who where told by William Shatner to "get a life," it might not surprise them that Bill has a "Raw Nerve" or two. But I bet they never would have guessed that "Shatner's Raw Nerve" would be the title of a celebrity interview show on the Biography channel.

As everyone who reads this knows, I am a big William Shatner fan. One of the reasons I am such a big fan is that Shatner is willing to try anything once to entertain his fans. He has "written" books, "sung" on cds, starred in movies and tv shows, done streaming online videos for his myspace "friends." He'll even make fun of himself like he did in Free Enterprise.

It looks like Bill has found a new way to entertain his fans, an interview show. According to Variety (hat tip to Kate at Fishbowl LA), the show will be 30 minutes long and "producers will make an effort to book guests separately from their movie and other junkets." When was the last time that happened? I would love to see conversations with actors and politicians during a time when they aren't promoting a product or running for office. If anyone can pull that one off, it will be the Shatner.
