“Star Trek” Returning To TV?
Apparently, STAR TREK and SLEEPY HOLLOW writer Roberto Orci (and presumably writing and producing partner Alex Kurtzman) have talked to CBS about doing a TV show based in the convoluted Trek-verse.
No one knows exactly what this would entail, or if it’s really going to happen, as it contradicts something J.J. Abrams said just a couple weeks ago (“What I’ve been told from the powers that be [At CBS] is that they’re not interested.”). Of course, perhaps AGENTS OF SHIELD’s success has changed that, or it was all a smoke screen. Here’s the Tweet from Sky News’ Joe Michalczuk that launched a thousand headlines:
“Bob Orci just told me they’ve had a meeting with CBS to revive @StarTrek on TV… This made me v[ery] excited.”
We’ll see what comes of this rumor. Hopefully not another tirade from Orci. What would you want in a new STAR TREK TV show, or do you even want one?!
