The Captains Close Up (mini-series) - 'Trek' Captains Shatner, Stewart, etc. in the Epix Channel's Miniseries

DVD set of this 5-part documentary is coming from eOne this August

Posted by David Lambert
    The Captains Close Up is a five-episode miniseries, directed by and featuring William Shatner. Each episode focuses on one of the Captains of Star Trek: Sir Patrick Stewart, Scott Bakula, Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks and of course, William Shatner, himself. Chris Pine, the newest Enterprise Captain, turns the tables to interview the original Captain of the Enterprise, William Shatner, and the two "Captain James T. Kirks" compare notes about love, life and family.

    William Shatner speaks with each of the Captains of the Starship USS Enterprise for an up close interview of their life after Star Trek. Each half-hour is an intimate portrayal of these talented actors and includes interviews from the biggest names in the world of Star Trek including; Jonathan Frakes, Walter Koenig, Michael Dorn, Rene Auberjonois, Rick Berman, Brannon Braga, Robert Beltran, Ron Moore, Terry Farrell, Nana Visitor and Ira Steven Behr, to name a few.
Following up on his 2011 film The Captains, William Shatner recently directed and starred in the 5-part documentary mini-series "The Captains Close Up," which aired this year on the Epix premium cable channel. Each episode is an in-depth interview with the various Star Trek captains from the shows, including Shatner himself (who, as the studio description quoted above mentions, was interviewed by Trek film captain Chris Pine). Other cast and crew are also included in these episodes.

Now the folks at eOne Entertainment are releasing The Captains Close Up - The Complete Series on DVD this August 13th. The single-disc release is priced at $19.98 SRP, and you can pre-order it right away from using the button link below. Underneath that is the package art. Running approximately 150 minutes long, this show is presented with anamorphic widescreen video, English 5.1 Dolby Digital audio, and English subtitles.
