CBS All Access’s trailer for Star Trek: Discovery

CBS All Access is a slight oddity, being a network in its own right making its own exclusive programming yet still being an adjunct of an existing broadcast network, CBS. So it doesn’t get a separate upfronts presentation from CBS proper, yet does have its own programmes – but is too small to do much better than TNT and other smaller networks. 

Which is basically my way of saying I’ll do CBS programmes in a bit but you can have this shiny trailer for CBS All Access’s one new, but highly anticipated programme. International viewers (including the UK) will be able to watch it on Netflix.

Star Trek: Discovery
A prequel to the voyages of Star Trek‘s USS Enterprise, in which Commander Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) gets her own command of the Discovery. Also features Doug Jones, Jason Isaac and Michelle Yeoh as Burnham’s mentor.

The series will premiere on CBS, with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access. It is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller’s Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. EPs are Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth.
