‘Blunt Talk’ Sneak Peek: Patrick Stewart Gets Serious About Dementia (Exclusive Video)

Walter Blunt helps his producer to face facts about her husband

The Starz comedy “Blunt Talk” takes a somber turn on Saturday night’s episode, with Patrick Stewart‘s character, erratic British newscaster Walter Blunt, helping his executive producer Rosalie (played by Jacki Weaver) come to grips with  a disturbing possibility involving her husband Teddy (Ed Begley Jr.)

In a clip from tonight’s episode, Blunt attempts to persuade Rosalie to face facts about her husband, despite her reluctance.

“You have to face up to what’s going on,” Blunt says. “I’m going to say this straight out. Is Teddy showing signs of dementia?”

“No, please, don’t say that word, Walter,” Rosalie responds. “I don’t want to watch Teddy disappear in front of my eyes, like my mother did, ’til he’s a stranger.”

“Blunt Talk,” which is created by Jonathan Ames and produced by “Family Guy” boss Seth MacFarlane, airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on Starz. Watch the sneak peek below.
