Re: STAR TREK: a series treatment starring APRIL and COLT

I couldn't get through the proposal, but the only thing I can think of is this:-

To my knowledge, there have been about 40+ sci-fi comedies.

The only ones that can truly be regarded as a success spanning multiple seasons over several years are Futurama and Red Dwarf.

Would any TV executive dream of greenlighting a comedy that not only has to overcome the anti-sci fi comedy hurdles to match that, but also tears the guts out of a franchise with 500+ hours dedicated to it?

Or to look at it another way, would the showrunners of Law and Order greenlight a police sitcom with the Law and Order name?

We all remember how well the Starsky & Hutch movie went down!

Re: STAR TREK: a series treatment starring APRIL and COLT

Hmm, don't thin anyone's mentioned it, but... the BBC series 'Hyperdrive'. Bringing teh funni to scifi comedy.

Actually, I prefer 'miserable failure that was oddly renewed a couple of times', but what do i know?

Oh,and I checked imdb, i can't find an entry under that name, whereas at least 5 of those who replied i'm pretty sure do have listings there.

Coming back to this comment, wasn't Star Trek initially compared by Gene Roddenberry to Horatio Hornblower ?

Not to mention "Wagon Train to the Stars."

This thread is still around?

I kinda stopped at "comedy", I have to admit.
Space shows are already rare enough. Comedy can be done anywhere.

Yeah but Star Trek comedy doesn't quite seem to fit.

Well, his facebook page does indicate some lobbying. But this is what caught my eye under Work and Education:
Star Trek
showrunning the next television series · Starting in 2014
Chutzpah, thy name is zekkie.
It's been well over a year now, and 2014 is drawing to a close. Can we assume by now that his attempt failed ? He said he'd come back to tell us, of course.

You would be correct; his work and education page on his Facebook now has no mention of Star Trek.
