CBS has released the trailers for the new shows debuting during the network’s 2016-17 season, including the upcoming revival of “Star Trek.” The first look teaser for the sci-fi series had no footage, but promised “new crews, new villains, new heroes, new worlds.”
Though the logo simply says “Star Trek,” Variety has learned that the series will have a more specific title to be unveiled at a later date. Later installments in the “Star Trek” television franchise had titles that differentiated them from the original series — “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” and “Star Trek: Enterprise.”

CBS is ready to jumpstart its fall season with a paper clip, rubber band, and lighter.
The network has ordered six new shows, including a reboot of the 1980s action series "MacGyver" and an adaptation of the movie "Training Day." The new shows also include comedies with big names as headliners: Matt LeBlanc and Joel McHale.
CBS has a lot of holes to fill in its schedule this fall. "The Good Wife" ended, "CSI: Cyber" was canceled (leaving the network without a "CSI" series for the first time in 16 years), and "Supergirl" is moving to The CW.
Here's a rundown of all the new CBS shows:
Synopsis: A drama inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw as the founder of one of the most prolific trial consulting firms of all time. »

The much-hyped reboot was one of four dramas the Eye network ordered to series on Friday, joining Jerry Bruckheimer’s Training Day remake, the Michael Weatherly-fronted Bull, and Jason Katims’ medical entry Pure Genius (fka Bunker Hill).
On the comedy side, CBS has Ok’d Joel McHale’s workplace sitcom The Great Indoors and Matt LeBlanc’s family satire Man With a Plan (fka I’m Not Your Friend). Speaking of the latter, The Office‘s Jenna Fischer — who was set to play LeBlanc’s wife — has exited the project for creative reasons. »
CBS has greenlit a slew of series for the 2016-2017 season.
In the comedy department, the network has ordered projects starring Matt LeBlanc and Joel McHale. As for dramas, CBS will be rebooting “Training Day,” “MacGyver,” plus has picked up a medical drama from Jason Katims and a new show starring “NCIS” star Michael Weatherly.
“Training Day” is based on the 2001 movie that starred Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke. The series revival stars Bill Paxton and newcomer Justin Cornwell. A crime thriller that begins 15 years after the events of the feature film left, the show is about an idealistic young police officer (Cornwell) who is appointed to an elite squad of the Lapd where he is partnered with a seasoned, morally ambiguous detective (Paxton). Drew Van Acker, Katrina Law, Lex Scott Davis and Julie Benz star alongside Paxton and Cornwell.

Fischer’s character is Andi, the wife of Adam (LeBlanc), who decides she wants to go back to her job as a medical lab technician, so Adam agrees to take over the parenting chores while she’s at work. The untitled multicam comedy revolves around LeBlanc’s character, a contractor who learns that raising his kids is more challenging than expected when his wife goes back to work.
A popular sitcom star, Fischer courted many comedy offers this pilot season before closing on LeBlanc’s pilot. Her decision likely came as the hot project is a frontrunner for a full series order, as it landed a hefty series commitment, meaning LeBlanc will receive a large penalty if it doesn’t go to series.
