Kurtzman, who has served as executive producer on geek favorites such as Fringe, Sleepy Hollow, and Limitless, co-wrote the Star Trek franchise reboot film in 2009 as well as 2013's Into Darkness. Sources report that this new series will not tie into the movies, but will feature new characters in search of new worlds and new civilizations - and, of course, going where no one has gone before.
Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek first aired on September 8, 1966, and the franchise will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016.
CBS All Access is available for $5.99 per month, and users can stream the local network live, as well as accessing thousands of episodes from CBS' roster (past and present). The streaming service currently features all of the previous Star Trek series.
