Blunt Talk series premiere TV billboards...

In recent years you may have been more familiar with Patrick Stewart for his role as 'Professor X' in the X-Men movies, treading the boards in London's West End or on Broadway, or generally being bromantically chummy about town with Ian McKellen, but the former captain of the Starship Enterprise is back on the small screen for his new Starz comedy, Blunt Talk.

He plays British newscaster 'Walter Blunt', who has moved to L.A. to host nightly cable talk show and candidly impart his worldly wisdom on his American audience.

Not only does he have to deal with interfering network bosses and inept newsroom staff, but he also comes with a lot of personal baggage, like several ex-wives and children.

But just as the downfall of NBC's Nightly News anchor Brian Williams proved, newsmen have their secrets and Walter Blunt is partial to the odd line of coke, a pint or ten, and sometimes getting into trouble with prostitutes (luckily he has an alcoholic manservant to help him out in times of trouble).

If you're on the fence about checking out the first ten episodes of the half-hour comedy, you should know that there will also be a second season of Blunt Talk to follow.

UPDATED: Patrick Stewart has been nominated for four Emmy awards in the past - Hamlet, Extras, The Lion in Winter and Moby Dick, so can he nab another nomination this year for the first season of Blunt Talk. Here's a Starz Emmy consideration billboard to try and help, spotted along Sunset Boulevard on June 13, 2016.

This season his sendup of a talk show and his ratings hungry team investigate an environmental threat to Los Angeles, and from the looks of this parched ad creative it may have something to do with the California drought.

Would you trust this band of misfits if they were the planet's last hope?
