Actor William Shatner, recognizable to television fans as Star Trek’s original Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise, is starring in a new leading role: project manager of his own home remodel in DIY Network’s The Shatner Project. The six-episode series chronicles William and his wife Elizabeth as they boldly transform their time-warped house into a shining star. From design to demolition, rebuilding to decorating, the Shatners’ dated ‘80s home undergoes massive makeovers for the kitchen, living room and front patio area in order to create the perfect place for big family parties.

A longtime dedicated breeder of American Quarter horses, William has had enormous success with the American Saddlebred, developing and riding world champions and has won numerous world championships in several equine events. His passions for horses and philanthropy were united when he started the Hollywood Charity Horse Show, which benefits Los Angeles-based children’s charities.

Most recently, Shatner starred in the TV series The Practice and Boston Legal and now plays the role of the renegade pitchman in commercials for Priceline. He continues to act, write, produce and direct while still making time to work with charities and further his passion in equestrian sports. He and Elizabeth reside in Los Angeles.
