“Star Trek” and “Star Trek Into Darkness,” to Executive Produce

CBS Studios International to Distribute the Series Globally

For Television and Multiple Platforms


STUDIO CITY, CALIF. AND NEW YORK, N.Y. – Nov. 2, 2015 – CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a totally new “Star Trek” television series in January 2017. The new series will blast off with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.

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.

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 station live for $5.99 per month. CBS All Access already offers every episode of all previous “Star Trek” television series.

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 new “Star Trek” TV 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.

“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.”

“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

I can understand getting rid of a lot of the empty spaces on the set, because the original set had that early TV look of something that you might find in a stage play. To a degree they were just filling spaces in TOS. But I don't like the strips of accent lighting and I think it was a little overboard on the detail work, it looked a touch too busy.

Take a look at this clunker from TNG:







I wouldn't expect them to do something like that. It would be ridiculous. But this modern interpretation is a bit off.

To be clear; I know that I'm being a quibbling nit picker. After the shit show of season one confirmed my worst doubts about the quality of the show, and after having that shittiness leak into the beginning of season two, they had to pretty much bend over backwards to keep me from shitting all over their ridiculous abortion. They have done that lately (although I skipped through a bunch of whiny dialogue scenes of tertiary characters emoting over their continued existence in this last episode) and I think they could pull off a BSG reboot level of quality if they'd stop the annoying stuff, like Burnham's overly dramatic and breathless attacks on every single bit of dialogue.

I don't watch the show, so there might be spoilers in this?

Season 2 in the books. Loved it. They even cleaned up the "why didn't anyone ever talk about Burnham?" mess. And it looks like next season will be in a completely uncharted area, so they can basically do whatever they want without fucking with any existing canon further.

Glad I stuck with it through the mostly crappy first season. It was definitely worth it. :-)

I guess I enjoyed the finale to a certain extent, but it was fucking riddled with plot holes and contrivances.

Edit: to expand on this,
1. So closing a door is the difference between the ship surviving or not? And Pike stood at the door and watched the explosion, which took a huge chunk out of the saucer, through a window in said door? That's a hell of a door.
2. They could have beamed the admiral out after she closed the door.
3. Discovery can't beam Spock out because they have to have their shields up to go through the time portal, but then the Enterprise beams him up before the time portal even opens.
4. Control is destroyed before they go to the future, negating their entire reason for going to the future. I guess they could have patched this pretty easy (there's no way to know if he's really been destroyed! We won't get another chance!) but still.
5. And everybody agrees to pretend Discovery and its crew never existed? Even though Michael was basically famous for committing mutiny and starting the Klingon war?

Good points all, but even the best Star Trek has elements that you need to overlook. Considering how bad this show was initially, I'm prepared to cut them some slack now that I'm enjoying it. Stupid shit notwithstanding. You could fly a dragon through the plot holes in Game of Thrones, too.

I have to say that I did enjoy the second season. I'd rather that they had the series follow characters and events that are loosely related to Pike's Enterprise than the Discovery crew.

... you mean you didn't notice the blatant mimic of Inception's hallway fight and Interstellar's singularity VFX?
