“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

It just looks...hollow. With terrible, terrible acting.

How about giving a Klingon a line?

Nice nod to the original movie with the jet suit.

The actors look wooden as hell, but the effects look decent. Minus Discovery though - it looks like a rejected Klingon scout ship.

Paramount is so lost with the Star Trek franchise that their first pictures look like a shitty version of a shitty Star Wars film, then follow it up with a completely uninspired trailer featuring not even one scene or actor with even a scintilla of charisma.

Such is Paramount.

Heh, this is actually what they first pictured the enterprise to look like before the first movie, (which was supposed to be a pilot for a new show originally).

I agree, though. Not a good look if it turns out this way.

Doesn't Paramount WANT a captive audience for lifting off their streaming service? Their captive audience already fucking spoke up about what the wanted. Dorn's Captain Worf series maybe wouldn't have attracted the random TV watchers initially, but it would have given them guaranteed NUMBERS at least, and if they made it any good at all, I'm sure the audience would grow bit by bit. Hell, and the freakin pilot was crowdfunded-ready.

And I just don't understand when entertainment is looking to re-capture millennial viewers by re-booting/re-starting shit from the 90s why Paramount fucking insists that this prequel shit is the way to go. How about you CONTINUE the events and adventures of the franchise when it was at its height? Those golden days of TNG never saw a more excited fanbase even among average television viewers for this show. They're not even allowing for "far future" series like TNG was to the original. God, how interesting would that be? Re-imagining technology and ships a full century past the events of TNG/DS9/Voyager? Get input from people to be fucking CREATIVE for fucking once. God, how about coming up with new modes of communication beyond the com-badge? Get some young kid to see that shit on TV and go, "I'm going to invent that!"

Nope. Fuck creativity. Fuck trying new things. Yes, I know they're restarting a 50-year old franchise, but they're not even TRYING to explore strange new worlds or seek out new life and new civilizations. They're banking on a fucking Klingon War.

We already had what we wanted regarding a Klingon War. The Axanar movie. Fans demanded it, and CBS said no. They could have commandeered it and rolled that direction with their shitty prequel. Nope. Has to be this stupid lower decks story. Is Michelle Yeoh even going to be recognized as a real captain in fan lore since she's not the headline act of this series?

I would have loved an Axanar movie that was fan-funded. So much better than the other fan-made shit out there. I would have loved CBS taking that and running with it if they were worried about missing out on profit. Instead, we got this crap.

And FUCK Bryan Fuller, too. I hope his career fucking dies. You don't commit to a franchise like Star Trek and then back out before the first fucking season, you dumbass fucking prick. We were promised the show would be in good hands with him because he knew how to connect to the fans with his writing, and now we got more terrible assholes who thought ST: Into Darkness is what fans wanted to see.

I'm watching the free one they'll broadcast. And I'm 99% certain I won't be blown away. When that happens, I ain't paying SHIT to stream this garbage. CBS can go fuck itself.
