Les Moonves revealed this morning that CBS had to wait six months after the premier of Star Trek Beyond before launching their new Star Trek television series, which will premier on CBS All Access next January. He also spoke about the future of All Access, including a possible merge with Showtime.
Trekkies were just treated to two big announcements concerning the future of the next Star Trek television* series, what we are currently calling Star Trek All Access: the announcement of Trek vet Nicholas Meyer as the first member of the writing staff and the addition of the caretaker of Star Trek’s legacy, Rod Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, along with the COO of Roddenberry Entertainment, Trevor Roth, as Executive Producers. In this episode of the Shuttle Pod, Brian, Jared, and Kayla discuss what this means for the future of the franchise.
Rod Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, and the COO of Roddenberry Entertainment, Trevor Roth, have both been named as executive producers for CBS’s upcoming Star Trek series. The pair join Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, and Bryan Fuller in the executive producer lineup.
Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in San Francisco today, CEO of CBS Les Moonves told the crowd that streaming services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu all wanted the new Star Trek series. And, they were willing to pay big bucks for what Moonves called “CBS’s family jewel”.
Fresh off the surprising announcement that he would be writing for CBS’s new Star Trek series, Nicholas Meyer spoke to Den of Geek about the project and gave some clues about the kind of tone it might have.
The fan favorite writer/director beams up to the team
Tony Todd, best known for his role in Candyman, said in a podcast interview yesterday that he is on “a very short list” to play a role in the upcoming Star Trek television* series.
As unusual as it is for the Internet, Trek fans seem to be reacting very positively to the news that former DS9 and Voyager writer Bryan Fuller will be the showrunner for the new series (which we’re just calling Star Trek: All Access for the time being). Bryan has 22 writing credits for Trek, which will probably get rewatched more in the next six months than they might otherwise. To help hone in which ones to rewatch (or at least which ones to start with!) we present our Top 5 Bryan Fuller episodes.
Bryan Fuller, veteran Star Trek writer (DS9 and VOY), has been tapped as co-creator and showrunner for CBS’s upcoming Star Trek television* series, set to debut in January 2017.
CBS’s announcement that Star Trek will be returning to the small screen caught many fans and media by surprise. Perhaps most intriguing is that the 7th incarnation of Trek on television will be available exclusively on CBS’s online streaming platform. Can Star Trek All Access succeed as the network’s flagship venturing into a new frontier? Now that we’ve all had some time to digest it, we here at TrekMovie thought it might be fun to dissect CBS’s press release and see what we can glean from it.
This morning CBS Television Studios announced the production of a new Star Trek series, set to premiere in January 2017.
