Star Trek: Netflix?!
#1
At Phoenix Comicon, Star Trek author and producer Larry Nemecek has announced that CBS is in talks with Netflix to produce a new series that would air on the streaming service. Set phasers to excited.
Update: Nemecek has posted a rebuttal of the original report, saying he never stated there were ongoing talks about a new Trek series on Netflix.
Apparently there have been “overtures” in the past, but as far as he knows nothing is happening right now.
According to Nemecek, Netflix approached CBS about hosting a new Trek series, then followed up with a proposal to create and produce the show completely in-house. If this deal goes through, the series would be a Netflix exclusive in the vein of House of Cards or Orange is the New Black. Interestingly, CBS is supposedly being offered a royalty deal that would pay it for each stream of the new series. No word on whether the series would be set in the new Abrams alternate timeline or the original one.

Oh man. Can't even begin to tell you how much I would love to see that happen. I really hate the way the television networks do things currently, cancelling anything that doesn't draw at least 10 million viewers if it costs more than 10 cents to produce. The streaming model seems like a much more friendly platform for shows like this.
