All Scott Bakula characters are really Dr. Sam Beckett.
That's my bad. Apologies.
All this talk, someone should edit the NCIS opening theme with Trek scenes. That would be epic.
Here's great analysis - https://www.indiewire.com/2018/09/leslie-moonves-cbs-out-exit-package-viacom-1202001479/
Do we know who will be replacing Less Movies yet?
Probably someone who's of a slightly lesser evil.
Probably someone that won't really matter in the long run because people in these positions never have much creative say beyond "make the show".
To those that are saying that it is far more important that a sexual predator was removed from a position of power than that his replacement be a Star Trek fan, that's conceded for sure, but, there are over 7 billion people on the planet, so I don't see why BOTH "not a sexual predator" AND "Star Trek fan" can't be on the shopping list.
Some things are morally and realistically more important than a silly piece of entertainment. I just can't be jokey or engage my fanboy in this situation.
He's not high enough on the food chain to make that leap.
Ostroff would have been the obvious choice. The "right" PR move would be to pick a woman and she has pretty heavy pull in higher echelons of CBS, but she signed a big deal with Spotify earlier this year.
The person who is second in command at the moment is going to run things till the Board finds a replacement.
COO Joe Ianniello is the guy.
I have big questions about whether and how the CBS online strategy is pursued in the post-Moonves era. Do they continue to champion CBSAA as their primary thrust into the online space? Does CBSAA continue to be a home for original content? Do they keep the same subscriber goals? Do they start to rely more on catalog for CBSAA numbers? Do they forge alliances with, say, Hulu?
These are questions whose answers have obvious impacts on CBSAA's flagship series. But who knows?
Why wouldn’t they? I think the smartest thing they did was work with Amazon to be used as an add-on. Much more friendly than their own app and of higher quality.
I somehow doubt there was any real dissension as to their strategy. CBSAA isn't that new, especially when you consider Disney and others are starting to start their own Brand based streaming services. CBSAA (and it growth due to the content it's offering like ST: D and "The Good Wife", etc. as well as the expansion of it's original offerings and more Star Trek wasn't to sole idea of Les Moonvies; and he wasn't the only one at CBS pushing/supporting the CBSAA Streaming service.
There's no question that CBS will continue marketing and producing content for CBSAA (like everyone else starting a streaming service to 'cash in'.
I figure they will be a different kind of evil.
Evil with a PhD... like Doctor Evil.
Pretty much. Streaming is the future. It's in CBS's best interest to get into that business because the old broadcasting system will not sustain as more people cut the cord.
We already have that. It's called The Orville. Maybe if the decision was to put it on CBS itself they would have chosen to sue Fox.
CBS is still available OTA.
