The CEO of CBS Says Streaming is Responsible for Star Trek: Discovery’s Serialized Storytelling

Speaking at a conference in San Francisco, [CBS CEO Leslie Moonves] talked about All Access and how Discovery fit into the network’s strategy for it, saying, as quoted by TrekMovie.com, “[Star Trek: Discovery] could have gone on CBS, it could have gone on Showtime, it could have gone directly to Netflix instead of just international, for a lot of money. There is a distinction. The Good Fight is a spin-off of a successful CBS show. It is sort of different on All Access, they can be serialized. On CBS we try to avoid that generally. Network television generally works better when it is not serialized.” – Julie Muncy, Gizmodo http://ift.tt/2FcJwBY
