Pitch to be made for new Star Trek series?
by Doc on Aug.26, 2011, under Television
Many have tried, none have succeeded: With such heavy hitters are Bryan Singer, William Shatner and JMS supposedly associated with Star Trek series that went nowhere, does a small production company stand a chance? We’ll see, as David Foster of 1947 Entertainment, which has a number of things in development, is apparently readying a pitch to CBS for a post-Voyager series in the old continuity, according to this interview with owner David Foster.
Interestingly, this series has been in development since 2006 under the code name S.E.T.I. (the acronym used by the real-life Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence project), between David Foster and the late Kevin Severson.
So it will be interesting to see if given the J.J. Abrams “new continuity” if there is room for a TV series in the “old continuity”.
