CBS brings the final frontier back to the small screen with a new Star Trek series teaser!
CBS has just brought online a new Star Trek series teaser, offering a first look at the franchise’s return to the small screen in 2017. As previously reported, Bryan Fuller, who launched his career writing for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, will return to the television franchise as co-creator and executive producer.
The new series, produced by CBS Television Studios, will launch with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network in January 2017. 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 new Star Trek series marks the first original series developed for CBS All Access.
Although no official details have been released regarding the new show, a report last month from Birth.Movies.Death claims that the series will be set in the original Star Trek canon and will function as an anthology series, moving throughout the Star Trek universe’s rich future history season to season. The new Star Trek series trailer certainly seems to hint at the latter, promising a plural “New crews.”
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, one of the most successful entertainment franchises of all time. The original Star Trek, created by Gene Roddenberry, spawned a dozen feature films and five successful television series. 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 1 billion social media impressions every month.
Star Trek is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout. Kurtzman, Fuller and Heather Kadin will serve as executive producers.
