The new showrunner for CBS’ Star Trek televised series will be Bryan Fuller.
Fuller, Alex Kurtzman, and Heather Kadin will executive produce the new Star Trek.
“My very first experience of Star Trek is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls,” said Fuller. “Before seeing a frame of the television series, the Star Trek universe lit my imagination on fire. It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand new iteration of Star Trek with fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman and boldly going where no Star Trek series has gone before.”
“Bringing Star Trek back to television means returning it to its roots, and for years those roots flourished under Bryan’s devoted care,” said Kurtzman. “His encyclopedic knowledge of Trek canon is surpassed only by his love for Gene Roddenberry‘s optimistic future, a vision that continues to guide us as we explore strange new worlds.”
Star Trek will begin airing next January on CBS’ All Access digital subscription service.
