William Shatner's Get A Life! is a documentary which was broadcast on the Epix channel in the US on 28 July 2012. The film focuses on Shatner's humorous exploration of Star Trek fanaticism and the show's enduring popularity.


Get a life!, William Shatner's comic rallying cry, memorably first exclaimed during a popular Saturday Night Live sketch, has been indelibly emblazoned into the collective psyche of Trekkers everywhere. Through the years, the phrase has spurred laughter, anger, controversy, and far more than its fair share of debate. Join William Shatner on a first person journey of discovery, told with self deprecating wit, unflagging honesty, and his trademark enthusiasm, as the legendary actor who played Starship Captain James T. Kirk finally come to grips with his past, his fans, their love, and his own intergalactic legacy.
