A brand new Star Trek television series is heading to CBS in January 2017!
One of the interesting factors in the news is that after the series premiere airs on the network, the rest of the episodes will air solely on the digital and VOD platform CBS All Access.
Star Trek will be the first original series developed for the streaming service.
“This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run Star Trek series has gone before – directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access,” said Marc DeBevoise, exec VP and g.m. of CBS Digital Media (via Variety). “We’ve experienced terrific growth for CBS All Access, expanding the service across affiliates and devices in a very short time. We now have an incredible opportunity to accelerate this growth with the iconic Star Trek, and its devoted and passionate fan base, as our first original series.”
