Starz has released the first teaser for “Blunt Talk,” starring Patrick Stewart.

The series, which premieres this summer, hails from Media Rights Capital, with Seth MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door Productions also executive producing. Jonathan Ames (“Bored to Death”) is also serving as executive producer, in addition to writer and showrunner.

The live-action comedy is set in the competitive world of cable news and follows an eccentric TV personality and his staff.

In “Blunt Talk,” Stewart plays Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news. Through the platform of his nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave.

Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt’s only support is the alcoholic manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles.

You can watch the teaser here.

“Blunt Talk” premieres this summer on Starz.
