Star TrekTen years after the last Star Trek TV project left broadcast television, CBS (corporate heirs to the television rights to Star Trek) announces that a new series is in preparation for a January 2017 premiere on CBS. But current plans call for only the pilot to air on CBS; future episodes will be streamed exclusively on CBS’ paid streaming service. (Territories outside the United States will get to see the new show on television and not just the web.) The new series is being overseen by Alex Kurtzman, co-producer of the two “reboot” movies to date, though CBS is quick to distance the new TV/streaming project from those movies.
