New ‘Star Trek’ TV Show Is Coming. Maybe. You Interested?

There could a new Star Trek TV show coming courtesy of That Guy Who Made Usual Suspects and Those X-Mutant Movies.


There’s been a lot of buzz the past few days about the possibility that the creators of theMunsters  reboot, now known asMockingbird Lane, could get a  Star Trek  TV show off the ground.

Both creators, Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer, have expressed a desire to bring backStar Trek  in the past – Fuller wanted to do a TV show set in the revamped timeline of J.J. Abrams’ movies, while Singer  wanted to do a show set in the far future.

And now, both Bryans are working together on  Mockingbird Lane  – so it’s not surprising to hear that they’ve chatted about their mutual interest in  Star Trek.  A report over at Ain’t It Cool News, late last week, mentioned in passing that the two Bryans had had conversations about it, and this got picked up over the weekend by a number of sites. From what we’re hearing, it sounds as though these are literally just conversations at this point, and there’s nothing concrete – and definitely nothing has been pitched to CBS yet. On the other hand, this gives us a good reason to hope that  Mockingbird Lane  does well – so it gives the creators enough clout to pitch an expensive  Star Trek  show.

Any Trekkies want to weigh in on this? As someone who has only really enjoyed the Abrams powered Star-Wars-Trek starring Captain Kirk Solo, I feel ill-equipped to blather.
