Star Trek: Discovery is a Star Trek television series to be filmed here in Toronto. It will be coming to CBS All Access, a digital platform, next year. CBS’s CEO, Jim Lanzone, decided not to put the series on a broadcast network because, “sci-fi is not something that has traditionally done really well on broadcast. It’s not impossible, for the future, if somebody figures it out. But historically, a show like ‘Star Trek’ wouldn’t necessarily be a broadcast show, at this point”.
Captain Foley and Commander Cockings from TrekYards.com joined the show to give us an update and discuss.
Is there room on network TV for a Sci-Fi series?
