    I'm just deleting this so nobody gets their hopes up since it was wrong.

    In such situations when someone's trying to sell something to a studio or network, there's generally the "don't call us, we'll call you" response. If the studio/network takes a pass, word of it often comes when the studio/network officially approves another proposal by someone else (I think--although I'm not 100% positive--Roddenberry experienced this when he first pitched TOS to CBS in 1964, but heard that they were going to develop another series called Lost In Space instead).

    Go back and read it again. He's referring to Shadow Cabinet not Star Trek, which hasn't even been formally pitched yet.

    I'm in agreement with those who believe a Series Fate is tied to the next movie. If the next movie does well, CBS is likely to listen to a pitch, and if they like it, they'll move forward to prepare the Series to hit right after the release of the third movie

    Phew! you guys scared me. Whatever it was that had one last prayer and then nothing further heard about it, that's a dead dog.

    I'd be surprised if CBS makes a decision before seeing how the next movie does at least, even assuming Orci does a pitch before then. He'd probably want another success in his pocket before going to CBS.

    I'm extremely curious what tactic he'll take. Two successful movies doesn't guarantee TV success, it just means he won't get the door slammed in his face.
