"CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a totally new Star Trek television series in January 2017. The new series will blast off with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.

The brand-new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.

Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer for the new Star Trek TV series. Kurtzman co-wrote and produced the blockbuster films Star Trek (2009) with Roberto Orci, and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) with Orci and Damon Lindelof. Both films were produced and directed by J.J. Abrams.

The new Star Trek TV series will not be related to Star Trek Beyond."

Boy was I excited to hear this announcement, and then immediately disappointed. Putting a Star Trek series exclusively on digital VOD? That's just insulting.

My first guess is that CBS itself might have cold feet about sci-fi after the recent cancellations of Under The Dome and Extant. But it's probably just they feel the Star Trek brand is strong enough to attract people to their service.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is moving to Netflix, who are apparently going forward the home of all things Jerry Seinfeld other than Seinfeld

Have to assume Crackle will shut down this year; there's pretty much not a single thing that could possibly justify its existence at this point. One of my favorite leaked emails from the Sony hack was the revelation that Seinfeld after a few seasons was not being paid for the show in cash but in percent ownership of the network, considering his position as literally their sole interesting talent.

NewsRadio is already being forgotten, Netflix could legit save its legacy at this point

This just in, reality television producers are neither sexist nor racist!

Reality Producers rank best and worst networks to work with

All this is measuring is which networks reality TV producers believe grant them the most prestige in their careers.

The pilot episode of Legion was pretty fantastic. It's almost an art house take on the Marvel Universe. Very well written. Some bold and fantastic editing choices. Excellent use of non-linear storytelling. Easily the best debut of 2017 so far.

I've been reading the pilot will be free to view, but subsequent episodes will only be available on CBS All Access.

March 5, "Feud: Bette and Joan" premieres on FX. Here is a little back story. The first line is priceless.

Anyone looking forward to The Alienist? I read the book and often wondered why it didn't get made into a film.

I am. If I'm not mistaken, John Sayles is responsible for the some of the script adaptation.

Though before anyone starts celebrating remember he got a parting gift of $40 mil. This probably only is smarting Murdoch and more as an ego thing than anything else.

I heard some rumblings on Twitter he might replace Spicer too, or that he'll get some job in the White House

That would be egregious, even for an administration that has re-drawn the line past which something is considered unacceptable.

And why would he want a shitty, thankless job that is, at best, a stepping stone to a career as...a news commentator.
