WILLIAM SHATNER told the LOS ANGELES TIMES' GEOFF BOUCHER this week that he plans to create radio drama versions of his "TEK WAR" series of science fiction novels and comic books.
"I've really entered the comic book world, but for me the next thing is my plan to make them in radio shows," the actor said. "(I)t will have brought 'TEK WAR' from novels to television to movies and to comic books and, hopefully, to radio ... I've done radio before as well. It's a foreign vehicle now. These days, it's hard to find people who can even write for radio. They've all disappeared. The production of a radio show is a challenge too, you've got to find sound people for all the effects, for instance, and that's almost a lost art. A whole tradition has been lost. We're barely able to recapture some of it, but that is exactly what I'd like to do. It's all very early on. I've got to sell the idea."
SHATNER, the star of "STAR TREK" and "BOSTON LEGAL," is set to star in CBS' sitcom version of the TWITTER feed "SH-T MY DAD SAYS" on THURSDAY nights this FALL.
