The new streaming show is setting a course for CBS All Access in 2017.
During the 2016 San Diego Comic Con, CBS revealed a new teaser for 'Star Trek: Discovery'. A special premiere episode of the show will air on CBS in January 2017. Following that initial broadcast, all first run episodes of the show will be available exclusively through the CBS All Access streaming platform in the US.
'Star Trek,' one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns to television 50 years after it first premiered. The new series will feature new crews, new villains, new heroes and new worlds, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen Berg & Aaron Harberts, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth will serve as executive producers. The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman's Secret Hideout, Fuller' Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment.
The recently released test footage offers our first look at the newest ship in the 'Star Trek' universe. Check out the teaser below!
