New Star Trek TV series to premiere in 2017

http://www.cbs.com/shows/star-trek-series/


A totally new Star Trek television series is coming in January 2017! The new series will blast off with a special preview broadcast of the premiere episode on the CBS Television Network, and the premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access.

The brand-new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.

Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer for the series. Kurtzman co-wrote and produced the blockbuster films Star Trek (2009) with Roberto Orci, and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) with Orci and Damon Lindelof. Both films were produced and directed by J.J. Abrams.

The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout. Kurtzman and Heather Kadin will serve as executive producers. Kurtzman is also an executive producer for the hit CBS television series Scorpion and Limitless, along with Kadin and Orci, and for Hawaii Five-0 with Orci.

The new program will be the first original series developed specifically for U.S. audiences for CBS All Access, a cross-platform streaming service that brings viewers thousands of episodes from CBS’s current and past seasons on demand, plus the ability to stream their local CBS Television stations live for $5.99 per month. CBS All Access already offers every episode of all previous Star Trek television series.

Sign up for a free trial of CBS All Access and prep for the new show with every episode of the classic Star Trek series available commercial-free!

Star Trek, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016, is one of the most successful entertainment franchises of all time. The original Star Trek spawned a dozen feature films and five successful television series. Almost half a century later, the Star Trek television series are licensed on a variety of different platforms in more than 190 countries, and the franchise still generates more than a billion social media impressions every month.

Born from the mind of Gene Roddenberry, the original Star Trek series debuted on Sept. 8, 1966 and aired for three seasons – a short run that belied the influence it would have for generations. The series also broke new ground in storytelling and cultural mores, providing a progressive look at topics including race relations, global politics and the environment.

“There is no better time to give Star Trek fans a new series than on the heels of the original show’s 50th anniversary celebration,” said David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios. “Everyone here has great respect for this storied franchise, and we’re excited to launch its next television chapter in the creative mind and skilled hands of Alex Kurtzman, someone who knows this world and its audience intimately.”

“This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run Star Trek series has gone before – directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access,” said Marc DeBevoise, Executive Vice President/General Manager – CBS Digital Media. “We’ve experienced terrific growth for CBS All Access, expanding the service across affiliates and devices in a very short time. We now have an incredible opportunity to accelerate this growth with the iconic Star Trek, and its devoted and passionate fan base, as our first original series.”

The next chapter of the Star Trek franchise will also be distributed concurrently for television and multiple platforms around the world by CBS Studios International.

“Every day, an episode of the Star Trek franchise is seen in almost every country in the world,” said Armando Nuñez, President and CEO, CBS Global Distribution Group. “We can’t wait to introduce Star Trek’s next voyage on television to its vast global fan base.”

CBS All Access offers its customers more than 7,500 episodes from the current television season, previous seasons and classic shows on demand nationwide, as well as the ability to stream local CBS stations live in more than 110 markets. Subscribers can use the service online and across devices via CBS.com, the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, as well as on connected devices such as Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Roku players and Roku TV, with more connected devices to come.

The new television series is not related to the upcoming feature film Star Trek Beyond, which is scheduled to be distributed by Paramount Pictures in summer 2016.

Yeah. It sucks that they pulled him. He doesn't "live in that universe."

Plus there is a huge body of excellent fiction that has continued the tales in the Trek universe. If they don't synch with that it's going to be really be suckage.

If they pull someone like me in as a continuity consultant they'll be fine.

Re: New Star Trek TV series to premiere in 2017

I became a fan of Star Trek (The next generation) recently, so I'll be definitely interested in this.

Bryan Fuller Talks Star Trek TV Show Plans - moviepilot.com

This seems so promising

Captain Angela Bassett Fingers crossed for that to happen.

Re: New Star Trek TV series to premiere in 2017

Bryan Fuller’s Star Trek Show an Anthology Series Taking Place at Various Points in the Main Continuity

Ever since CBS announced plans for a Bryan Fuller-helmed Star Trek series exclusively for CBS All Access, fans have been speculating about which continuity the series would follow. Well, we may have finally gotten some answers!

According to Birth. Movies. Death, “a trusted source” revealed that the upcoming Star Trek series will be a seasonal anthology series a la True Detective, Fargo, or American Horror Story, where every season will tell an entirely new story set in the Star Trek universe. Which universe? Definitely not the alternate timeline of the J.J. Abrams films, so fret not Trek purists. This show will live exclusively in the world of the original series and films.

The first season of the new Star Trek will take place before Star Trek: TNG, in the time after Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country. It’s red uniform time! It won’t, however, be taking place on any Enterprise. Sadly, there won’t be any cameos from any of the original shows in this first season, as most of the original Enterprise crew would be dead, Captain Kirk would already be in the Nexus, and most of the Next Gen crew would barely be glimmers in anyone’s eye.

However, what’s exciting about an anthology series is that it has the possibility of attracting high-caliber talent that might not otherwise be available for a longer commitment. Like…oh, I don’t know…Captain Angela Bassett? Also, just because they can’t play their original characters doesn’t mean folks like Jonathan Frakes or Gates McFadden couldn’t play completely different characters. It would be weird for the Original Series actors to do that, since the events of this season take place after we already know them as Uhura, Sulu, or Chekov. However, Brent Spiner playing someone completely not Data-related? Totally doable!

Exciting, too, are the limitless possibilities of what the new television Star Trek landscape could become! Star Trek may be a 50 year old franchise, but it’s still possible to boldly go where no one has gone before, even within its set parameters.

That’s pretty damn exciting!

Re: New Star Trek TV series to premiere in 2017

considering the fate of almost all of Fuller's work, hope this turns out to be an exception to the rule.

This already has a big built-in fanbase though, which I hope will make the difference. I mean if the mess that was Enterprise made it to 4 seasons...

I don't know how deep into Trek you are but the Trek universe is filled with a lot of excellent story lines via novels. All the series have ongoing stories. If those aren't factored in the show will only appeal to casual Trek fan sor those new to Star Trek.

But that's literally what they've been doing for the past 50 years, casting not-so-well-known actors, so a change can't be bad. Besides, if Captain Angela Bassett indeed happens it'll only be for one season.

I think I've read 5, 4 Voyager and 1 TNG; all very entertaining. None of them set after Nemesis though.
