William Shatner has offered his stamp of approval on a new documentary about his life from Legion M and Exhibit A Pictures. The pair of production companies announced the documentary Thursday.

“For years I’ve had people approaching me to do a documentary about my life, but I turned them all down because it didn’t feel like the right fit,” Shatner said in a statement.

“When I heard how Legion M wanted to incorporate audiences to be a part of it, it was perfect.

Fans have been responsible for my career — it only seems right that they should own this doc.”
