My Next Trek Wish List

Memory Alpha:
An untitled Star Trek series is to be released in 2017. It will be produced by CBS Television Studios and Secret Hideout. Executive producers are Alex Kurtzman [producer, ominously enough, of Star Trek: Into Darkness and executive producer of the execrable Scorpion and the Hawaii Five-O reboot series--d] and Heather Kadin [Scorpion again, I'm afraid, and, possibly worse, Limitless--d]. The first series to be developed for the CBS All Access subscription platform, it is expected to be released in January 2017, with a preview broadcast of the premiere episode on the CBS network. In the US, all subsequent episodes will be exclusive to CBS All Access. [Six bucks a month, suckers!--d] The series was announced by on 2 November 2015. According to the press release, "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."
