new star trek tv series

CBS is using their new Star Trek series as the chief selling point of their new All Access streaming service and they’re making a pretty compelling case as for why it will be worth plunking down a few bucks every month. After all, the new series will be run by the great Bryan Fuller of Hannibal and Pushing Daisies fame. Nicholas Meyer, the director Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country is on board as a writer and producer. It even has the Roddenberry family seal of approval. This was more than enough to get me, a fairly dedicated Trek fan, on board.

Now, new details about the series have made their way to the internet and while you should keep a grain of salt or two on hand, they make this new show sound like one of the most promising and intriguing Trek series since…well, ever. In short: the first season will be set after the end of the original cast movies and it will be an anthology series.

Hannibal finale

The Hannibal finale is incredibly satisfying. NBC’s surreal, dark show never scored huge in the ratings, but it’s a miracle a story this ambitious lasted three seasons, and thankfully it ended on a high note, with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) finally getting some much needed alone time.

After the jump, the cast and crew explain the Hannibal finale.

Hannibal Peta commercial

I miss Hannibal. Sometimes the NBC show would make me sick to my stomach, in a great way, or make me crave an extravagant feast full of meat — preferably non-human meat. The show was some of the finest food porn to ever be made for television. Hannibal wasn’t always dining on leftover eyeballs or freshly baked brain, so it’s okay to admit some of his cooking looked pretty damn good.

The show’s creator, Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies), unsurprisingly, is a vegetarian. Fuller and Hannibal‘s co-star, Gillian Anderson (The Fall), have returned to the world of Hannibal for a PETA commercial, launched just in time for Thanksgiving.

Watch the 30-second advertisement after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Amazing Stories remake

At a time when anthology television series such as American Horror Story, True Detective and Fargo are such hits, it’s surprising that shows like The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits aren’t getting the remake treatment. However, that might change if NBC finds success bringing a familiar anthology series of that kind back to the small screen.

Amazing Stories was an hour-long weekly sci-fi and fantasy anthology series created and executive produced by Steven Spielberg that told stories of the fantastic, strange and supernatural, and now Pushing Daisies and Hannibal creator and executive producer Bryan Fuller and Amblin TV will bring the show to NBC for a revival.

American Gods director

We still don’t know who will star in American Gods, the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s novel which marks the major post-Hannibal project for producer Bryan Fuller. Now we do know, however, that the Starz series will bring another veteran of Fuller’s last series into the fold. Hannibal director and exec producer David Slade is signing on to helm the pilot of the new series, and it sounds like he’ll be just as involved in American Gods as he was with Hannibal. Read More »

Hannibal season 4

Hannibal is over. Here’s a hankie to dry your tears. Oh, sorry, that one has blood on it, try this one instead. But what if… Hannibal wasn’t really over? What if there could be a movie? That’s the sort of thing that cold-hearted series creator Bryan Fuller is talking about right now, and even though that’s the sort of thing he’s been talking about for a while, fans of the departed show might be happy to know that producers are still thinking about ways to continue the story.

Fuller says in an interview that “[producer] Martha De Laurentiis is looking into financing for a feature film,” and that while the odds are low — less than 50/50 — they’re still trying to work things out. There are even more comments out there about what a fourth season might have been, too, which will give people ideas to chew on while dreaming of that movie or new mini-series or whatever.

Note that spoilers for the end of Hannibal season three follow. Read More »
