Roberto Orci Meeting With CBS For New STAR TREK TV Show
With this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness now available on home video, and director J.J. Abrams hopping asteroid fields to take on Star Wars: Episode VII, there remains a bit of uncertainty for the future of Trekkies. But in place of Star Trek 3, Could we be seeing a TV Show in the Future?
In a joyous tweet for Star Trek fans by Sky News reporter Joe Michalczuk shared word that Roberto Orci told him he’s met with CBS to talk about bringing Star Trek back to the small screen.
With Orci taking meetings – or inquiring about the rights - that would suggest that a new Star Trek TV series – if greenlit – would be in the same timeline as the film franchise, when the Enterprise begins its 5-year mission. An series in the rebooted Trek universe would allow CBS to pull a Disney and have a television show based in the same cinematic universe as the films, a la Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Orci is, however, loyal to his brands, evidenced by his work on the Transformers Prime animated series which is not in the same universe as Michael Bay’s movies – which he and writing partner Alex Kurtzman left after two installments. Orci and Kurtzman are busy producers/writers, with Sleepy Hollow starting strong on Fox, Ender’s Game preparing for its theatrical release, and development beginning on a new Van Helsing and a Mummy reboot, not to mention work on the Amazing Spider-Man sequels.
