A WORD FROM CHRIS
I honestly have no idea where this concept came from. I just remember one day, years ago, I thought it would be funny if Shatner and West ever did a buddy cop style show. But for many years, it was just a silly idea. A throwaway concept that would make people chuckle, and nothing more.
Last year, I made a silly poster just for the hell of it, but it wasn't until this quarantine, that I decided to say "screw it" and try to bring this concept to life. It was just so zany and outlandish, that it makes me giggle just thinking about it.
When creating the script for West of Shatner, I wanted to throw in as many cliches and insane ideas as I could think of, from being attacked by ninjas to them driving a talking Delorean that sounds like Matt Berry. It was very freeing to have zero limitations and restrictions.
All dialog was recorded remotely and separately from my voice actors' respective homes. One of the great things about doing these radio plays is that they are so easy to produce. It's exciting and I kinda of want to do more.
