William Shatner, fresh off the debut of his EPIX documentary The Captains, will continue filming the pilot for the documentary television project he’s hoping to get off the ground, entitled Fan-Addicts.
As we previously reported, Shatner began filming the pilot at Creation’s New Jersey Star Trek Convention last June.
In partnership with Creation Entertainment, Shatner will be collecting more footage for the pilot at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention in less than two weeks, as they’ve put out a call for fans to submit stories, talking about their passion for Star Trek.
Entries must be 500 words or less and can be submitted directly to Creation, by emailing Creation’s Adam Malin (email@example.com) before Friday, August 5th at 5 p.m. PST.
