Alex Kurtzman Inks $25M Overall Deal Extension With CBS TV Studios, Will Expand ‘Star Trek’ TV Franchise

The new deal comes as rumblings about another Star Trek series, featuring Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, have been heating up. Sources say Kurtzman and Akiva Goldsman, who left Discovery after season one, are attached to the Stewart-led reboot. CBS TV Studios declined to confirm the Stewart project as sources say a deal is far from completed and may not happen despite the fact that the actor recently teased his potential return to the franchise. – Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter https://ift.tt/2K1xnOW
