Besides starring in the ABC drama “Boston Legal,” William Shatner is getting additional duties: The Emmy winner will also host the new trivia game show “Show Me the Money” for the network.

“Money” is being developed by Endemol USA, the same company that produces NBC’s “Deal or No Deal.” A premiere date has not been announced.

“Bill was the guy we wanted from day one to host ‘Show Me the Money,'” said David Goldberg, president of Endemol USA. “More than anything, we were looking for a great showman, and in addition to being an instantly recognizable entertainer to audiences of all ages, Bill’s got a naturally warm and witty presence that is simply perfect for the material.”

“Show Me the Money” will be produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. Mike Nichols is executive producing.
