What is "Blunt Talk" without Blunt talking? The Starz comedy answers precisely this philosophical uncertainty when Patrick Stewart’s Walter Blunt plays hooky on his own newscast.

In this week’s episode, titled "We’ve Got A Runner!," Walter and his executive producer Rosalie hunt for her missing husband, forcing Walter to miss a broadcast. He hands the keys of the kingdom to Timm Sharp’s Jim, giving the nebbish head writer his "Broadcast News" moment. 

The episode airs this Saturday, October 3 at 9pm. Watch an exclusive clip above.
