Re: CBS Developing 2 New Treks?

The Wrap was the only source that reported on it at the time. Trek Movie said it was bunk on their Twitter, apparently, but I haven't been able to find the Tweet (I'm not that familiar with Twitter, honestly).

In any event, it was based on an anonymous source, and not picked up by Variety or Hollywood Reporter (which you would expect, if it had basis) after it was posted. I somehow doubt that Abrams was that unfamiliar with the ownership of the IP before he got involved in the first movie. You don't get to his position without being a little savvy. And, if he was so dissatisfied, why did he come back to direct the second film? It just doesn't add up.

Re: CBS Developing 2 New Treks?

I put the following words into a Google search: "variety huffington post jj abrams cbs merchandise star trek"

I got 10 pages of nothing. So, the question becomes whether or not The Wrap is credible. What is their track record? If they're reliable, I'd give the benefit of the doubt. If they're not, then obviously not.

Someone else can feel free to do a separate sort of search if they like but, to quote a line from 12 Angry Men, "I now have reasonable doubt."

Not to mention, with the exception of a TV show, we got all of the other stuff anyway.

Re: CBS Developing 2 New Treks?

While I don't really believe that all this is true, I have to admit that if CBS ever revived Trek on TV, that these two shows are probably the way they would go. Also, there's some economy of scale in doing two shows at once instead of one. More bang for the SFX bucks.

Er, yeah, that was the quote the OP posted at the beginning of this thread, which had been proven false.
