New 'Star Trek' TV Series a Go at CBS All Access

Alex Kurtzman is attached to the new series, which will premiere in January 2017 on CBS before new episodes debut on its digital and VOD platform.
Just in time for its 50th anniversary, Star Trekmay be returning to the small screen.

Prolific producer Alex Kurtzman is developing a new take on the beloved sci-fi classic for TV, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The new Star Trek has been picked up straight to series at CBS, with the premiere slated for the network in January 2017. Subsequent episodes will air on its digital and VOD platform, CBS All Access. The premiere and all subsequent episodes will then be available in the U.S. on CBS All Access, the network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service. Star Trek marks the first original series developed specifically for CBS All Access.

The 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.
The cross-platform streaming services, which hosts thousands of episodes from CBS' roster (both past and present) is a subscription service available for $5.99 per month that also includes the ability to stream the local network live. All previous Star Trek series are currently available on CBS All Access. CBS Studios International will distribute the series for TV and multiple platforms around the world.

The drama is set up at CBS Television Studios and Kurtzman's newly launched Secret Hideout banner. Kurtzman and development head Heather Kadin will exec produce. A search is under way for a writer to take on the cult hit. The franchise is poised to celebrate its 50th anniversary as the original series debuted Sept. 8, 1966.

The new Star Trek TV series would continue Kurtzman's relationship with the beloved franchise. He produced the Star Trek feature film series, writing 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness and 2009's franchise revival. The fourth in the franchise set for 2019, though Kurtzman is not attached.

PS: Every fucking article about this has TOS Kirk and Spock photos to accompany it, as though there haven't been four other Star Trek shows and a newer movie franchise that came after it. That really annoyed me.

I'm not buying your shitty CBS streaming service. Make a deal with Netflix.

I'm not paying six dollars a month for a Star Trek series not good enough for TV or a legit streaming service. That being said, I wouldn't mind a new Trek series set in the Abrams verse about an Enterprise sister ship on a real five year journey. You can even populate it was classic Trek characters like Gary Mitchell, the guy from The Doomsday Device, Kahn's chick with the red hair, Janice Rand, Scotty's weird friend, and Tuvok who served under Captain Sulu many futures later.

I will give them points for coming up with something that MIGHT bring subs. They may get enough Trek geeks to make this worth it.

They think people want streaming services. Wrong. People want consolidation.

Does Kirk have a fool brother with an even more foolish sidekick? "Captaining" his own Enterprise, which is Of Gods and Men quality set design. Space JoeP is actually Bones and Spock in one. He's a science officer who obsesses over steroids and a doctor who only prescribed steroids.

It's amazing, it's like they don't understand the popularity of something like Netflix AT ALL. They just think people want as many streaming services as there are channels, which is exactly the old business model of cable. It's moronic.

This show will wind up on some cable/satellite channel as well. Not exclusively for streaming customers.

Here's the big question they needed to ask. Why would people want to pay more money on top of what they already pay? I am even willing to say, okay with more streaming services to see what you can do. Experiment. Whatever. You'll fail, look what happened to Yahoo, but so what.

What makes this even more insane is thinking people will pay $7.00 a month for a shitty new Trek show and Scorpion.

Space, the final frontier.

It should be noted that JoeP is in full dress uniform in that picture.

Spock: It's too dangerous to beam down to the surface, Captain.

Captain Joe: What are you, a half-a-fag or some shit?

He bashes Ensign Albino for have relations with an uncomfortable amount of aliens, but still spins yarns about not-good-enough-to-be-Dabo-girls he picked up at Quark's 30 years ago.

I would actually like to see whats going on with the destruction of Romulus and not the new trek universe. Granted, they have military outposts all over the place, but the homeworlds destruction takes out one of the biggest power bases in the galaxy.

I thought the destruction of Romulus was the NuTrek universe. In Nemesis, Romulus was still a planet.

Nah, they said the time lines split. So the stupid movies are a whole other universe from the good one.

Star Trek: The Next Generation in the Abrams-Verse. Picard never suffered an industrial accident with a Wine-Press, and has a full head of hair. He also had an affair with Crusher and she is still married to her husband who is still alive. Wesley, who isn't annoying, looks just like Picard. A Galaxy class Star ship is even more bloated in this version, to keep it in proportion to the equally bloated new Constitution Class. It now has crew of 20,000 people with 50 holodecks, ten landing bays, 15 bowling alleys, seven movie theaters, and 300 mess areas. Not only will it do a saucer separate, but each nacelle will also separate and do warp 10 for 30 days or until it explodes.

I honestly don't know which you are calling the stupid movies. I'd take Abrams over the TNG films.
