Star Trek author and producer Larry Nemecek has announced at the Phoenix Comicon that CBS is in talks with Netflix to produce a new series!
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.
Netflix is supposedly being offered a royalty deal for payment PER STREAM! If true, that's quite a deal! Whether the story will be set in the Abrams universe is up for discussion.
If more than just a rumor, we could be christening a new captain very soon!
