According to The Hollywood Reporter, producer Alex Kurtzman is developing a new Star Trek series for CBS! The show will premiere in January 2017 on CBS before more episodes come out on a digital and the CBS All Access VOD platform. Apparently Kurtzman, who is a writer and producer on J.J. Abrams’ Trek films, is looking for a writer for the show, which “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.” This is so exciting! A show that gets back to Star Trek’s roots of celebrating optimism and exploration will make for a welcome addition to the television landscape, and we cannot wait to
