CBS unveiled plans to expand its “Star Trek” franchise for television, including developing new series and miniseries along with other content, including animation. The expansion plans are part of a new five-year overall deal between CBS Television Studios and “Star Trek: Discovery” producer Alex Kurtzman.
“Under the agreement, CBS Television Studios will have exclusive rights to produce all television content created and developed by Kurtzman and his Secret Hideout production banner for the next five years,” CBS said in the announcement.
