CBS Studios debuted a teaser trailer and revealed the logo for the new Star Trek series today at the CBS upfront presentation for advertisers at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Les Moonves introduced the first elements for the show, which will premiere in January, 2017.
Bryan Fuller is on board as executive producer/show runner, Alex Kurtzman as executive producer and Nicholas Meyer as writer and consulting producer. Based on the teaser, the series seems to be focused on expanding the Trek Universe, but it’s unknown if it fits into the classic continuity of the previous series or if it is part of J.J. Abrams’ revamped universe.
The premiere episode will air on the CBS Television Network and all subsequent first-run episodes will be available exclusively on CBS All Access.
Production on the new Trek series will begin this fall in Toronto, Canada.
