If the movie is a success I suspect that a tv series would be set around the time of TOS or perhaps slightly before.
I really hope not, it's been done to death by now.
If they have to have a prequel to anything, how about setting between ST6:TUC and TNG. Ent-C era or there abouts.
There's a lot we don't know about that era, its a big gap which could easily accommodate a series.
Wouldn't be able to set it on the Ent-C as we know the fate of that ship. So it would have to be another ship.
If you really wanted you could even have it on the Stargazer, with a young lieutenant Picard coming aboard towards the end of the series.
