After previously dipping their toes into the superhero genre with Supergirl, which now resides at The CW, CBS is looking to get back in the game. Variety is reporting that CBS has commissioned a pilot for a Secret Six series, which currently has Rick Muirragui (Suits), Bill Lawrence (Scrubs), and Jeff Ingold (Whiskey Cavalier) attached as executive producers alongside Warner Bros. TV.
“Secret Six centers on six morally ambiguous strangers, each with their own unique specialties and secret pasts, who are brought together by an enigmatic figure who blackmails them into working as a team to expose the corruption of the corporate and political elite.”
CBS All Access has shared the first trailer for season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery, with the reveal of a bearded Spock, played by Ethan Peck (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) in the new season, as well as a ton of new footage from the upcoming season.
This looks like a considerable improvement from the first season, with many of the new beats and visuals looking fantastic. Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery hits CBS All Access on January 17th.
After rumors of Jordan Peele (Get Out) producing the new Twilight Zone revival for CBS All Access, many of us were hoping the acclaimed actor/director would take on hosting duties, as well. Now, CBS has made it official, as Jordan Peele takes the reins from the legendary Rod Serling, the original iconic voice of the horror anthology.
“Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time, but prophesied issues of ours,” Peele said in a statement, according to TV Line. “I’m honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone.”
After years of work and waiting, the next Star Trek television show has finally been given a premiere date. CBS has announced that the first eight episodes of the 15-episode first season will premiere between September 24, and November 5. Where the rest of the episodes will premiere in January 2018.
It’s been a long road to this point, with obstacles in every direction for the classic space-faring franchise. But, it’s good to see a return to form for one of the cornerstones of science fiction.
Holy… this is so awesome. CBS has finally made available the first trailer for All Access Exclusive Star Trek: Discovery, and it is absolutely gorgeous. The first new Star Trek television series in 13 years, we get a look at the new ships, new uniforms, new aliens, and new crew, as well as a complete re-design for the Klingon people, which looks incredible.
The Star Trek: Discovery cast includes Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou, Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca, Doug Jones as science officer Saru, Anthony Rapp as fellow science officer Stamets, Terry Serpico as Starfleet admiral Anderson, Maulik Pancholy as chief medical officer Nambue, James Frain as Sarek, astrophysicist and father of Spock, and Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd.
