$#*! My Dad Says has been signed for 18 episodes, starring William Shatner as a grumpy old man whose son relays his words of wisdom via Twitter.Channel 5's digital-only offering Fiver will become 5* from next month.
Broadcast Now reports that the channel is to be relaunched under its new banner on March 7.
A new logo will support the rebranding, which follows the decision to refresh the Channel 5 design from February 14.
5*'s identity will "underline the fun-loving image of the channel", while the network will also run a competition for unsigned artists to write the music for the broadcaster's on-air promos.
GOOD NEWS!! We get more US repeats, no mention if 5* is going to make any new content.
