New Star Trek Series Confirmed

CBS has announced that they will be debuing an all-new Star Trek television show on their All Access streaming service in January 2017. Alex Kurtzman will executive produce along with Heather Kadin. CBS Television Studios President David Stapf commented,
There is no better time to give Star Trek fans a new series than on the heels of the original show’s 50th anniversary celebration. Everyone here has great respect for this storied franchise, and we’re excited to launch its next television chapter in the creative mind and skilled hands of Alex Kurtzman, someone who knows this world and its audience intimately.
Marc DeBevoise, Executive Vice President/General Manager of CBS Digital Media said,
This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run Star Trek series has gone before – directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access. We’ve experienced terrific growth for CBS All Access, expanding the service across affiliates and devices in a very short time. We now have an incredible opportunity to accelerate this growth with the iconic Star Trek, and its devoted and passionate fan base, as our first original series.
UPDATE: Source link added. Also, the show is "not related" to Star Trek: Beyond. I'm hoping that means it takes place in the original timeline.
