Star Trek star William Shatner will narrate the US broadcast of the new Clangers series.
Clangers will air on Sprout in the US in June 2015 and Shatner follows in the footsteps of Michael Palin who is narrating the UK version.
“When we began working on Clangers, we knew that we needed to find a narrator for the show who could connect with multiple generations of parents and kids,” said Sprout president Sandy Wax.
“William Shatner has a voice that is comfortable in outer space and captures the distinct charm of the show while bringing his own unique sensibility to the role.”
The Clangers is scheduled to premiere in the US on Sprout’s Sunny Side Up Show at 11am on June 20th, 2015 and will also run nightly at 8pm within The Good Night Show.
