Roberto Orci, one of the men behind the recently rebooted Star Trek, has allegedly told a SKY News reporter that he has met CBS chiefs about a new TV series based on Gene Roddenberry’s creation.
At a recent UK press junket for Ender’s Game, the JJ Abrams collaborator told reporter Joe Michaelczuk that there has been a meeting to bring the influential sci-fi franchise back to television.
Michaelczuk tweeted: “Bob Orci just told me they’ve had a meeting with CBS to revive @StarTrek on TV…This made me v excited.”
No idea who they are although it wouldn’t be much of a jump to suggest that producing partner Alex Kurtzman would be one of them.
The big question now is: will the new series, if it comes to fruition, recast the Enterprise crew or will we see an altogether different take a la Deep Space Nine?
As ever, let us know your thoughts.
