“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

Star Trek: Discovery‘s first season on CBS All Access will consist of 15 episodes, up from the 13 originally commissioned. In addition to the order increase, Star Trek: Discovery will be getting a companion show, Talking Trek.

After some delays, Star Trek: Discovery, currently filming its sixth episode, is on track for a fall launch with a premiere on CBS. The announcement was made during CBS’s upfront presentation, where the first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery made its debut. We will post it as soon as it’s available.

Yeah, after the initial Pilot episodes, which were Black & White and very "dark" in tone, the series shifted to color and became really goofy.

The sad part is that they wasted so much talent, including that of a young John Williams.

Gotta say that looks like total shit. Not moved by characters, effects or dialogue. Bland.

It honestly looks like a fan film that's trying hard to be Abrams Star Trek. The fucking lens flares and jank-ass camera angles my god.

That's an insult to fan films. Ever watch Star Trek Continues? It blows this shit away. They should have turned over the reigns to Vic Mignogna instead of shutting them down.

I used to have a cousin named Mikey. He was my stepfather's brother's child. He was a few years younger than me. Not much, just enough for me to notice what I perceived as the immaturity of his behavior. I saw him often when I was in elementary school and middle school. My aunt and uncle would come to visit and of course they would bring their son with them. He was annoying in a kid brother kind of way, which unsettled me a bit because I was the youngest in my family and I wasn't used to that feeling. The feeling of having a younger sibling. But I got used to it and I got used to him. Even after my mom and stepdad divorced. Because my aunt and uncle continued to visit us afterward. Checking on us, making sure we were doing all right, being there for us. They taught me a lot about what 'family' really means and I'm thankful to them for that.

One day on a cold Winter morning in Virginia my sister came running up to me as I played with my two best friends. We were kicking a soccer ball around and making a game of it. Boisterous and violent with glee, not a care in the world. Until I saw her face. Her pale face as white as that snow on the ground. And then her wild dark eyes huge like open pits streaming tears down her cheeks, tears dripping off of her nose and mouth, and I heard her ragged breaths between cries of anguish. Louder and louder as she ran towards me the cries were like strangled screams ripped from her lungs, and then they became sobs as she stopped not ten feet from me. "It's Mikey" she finally managed to squeak out. He had been run over by a school bus. He was killed instantly. I'd like to think that he felt no pain. The four of us just stood there with our breath billowing out in clouds, filling the frozen air between us. After the details had been relayed there was nothing that any of us could think to say. My sister returned home and I remained with my friends for a while. Stunned. Perhaps I was in shock.

I think of him now and then. He was part of my childhood. Another chunk of my life that I will never get back, that I will never relive, that is gone forever no matter how many pictures I see, or videos I watch, or recordings I hear. We bury the past like we bury the dead. We leave it behind because to dwell there is a sort of madness that we can't really afford to engage in. We do it so our memories don't become ghosts that haunt us. And that's what this trailer represents. The ghost of a dead child that should have been left in the ground. This show is going to be crap.

This trailer is 25 years old and is more exciting.

So I gather you weren't impressed? :-)
