PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Since first soaring onto TV screens in the 1960s, Star Trek has become one of the most durable and beloved franchises of all time. At the center of each Star Trek incarnation is what has become a truly iconic character: The Captain. THE CAPTAINS CLOSE UP is a five episode mini-series, as seen on Epix, that “boldly goes where no man has gone before,” giving viewers an intimate look at the actors that have inhabited this role – all through the eyes of the man who played the first Captain more than 45 years ago: William Shatner.

 

Based on the multi-million dollar budget feature documentary The Captains, written and directed by Shatner, The Captains CLOSE UP provides an even deeper behind-the-scenes look at the actors who have made the Star Trek an international phenomenon. Each episode features William Shatner conducting an in-depth, one-on-one interview with one of his fellow Captains, and delves into the working challenges and personal rewards each actor garnered from his or her groundbreaking role at the Star Trek Starfleet helm.
