Bryan Fuller At The Helm Of New Star Trek Show!

13 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Television / Showtime

In a year that just so happens to be the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of Star Trek, finally comes word about the new TV series, set to hit the air on CBS in 2017.

Hannibal’s Bryan Fuller is set to run the show, entirely fitting considering that a) he’s a huge fan of Star Trek and b) actually cut his teeth on Deep Space Nine and Voyager at the beginning of his career.

Fuller has been a cult TV hero for some time now, after creating under-appreciated shows like Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies and doing a well-regarded stint on Heroes a few years back. Hannibal specifically lit up the critic circuit, if unfortunately not finding similar success in the ratings.

If anything, the man has always shown extreme passion for the shows that he commits himself to, and considering that he’s such a big fan of Trek, »

It's official: Trekkers are over the moon about Bryan Fuller's 'Star Trek' gig

9 February 2016 5:51 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's official: Trekkies and Trekkers across the net are over the moon about CBS's announcement Tuesday that Bryan Fuller will take up the mantle of showrunner on CBS's forthcoming Star Trek series. Indeed, the writer/producer's connections to the franchise run deep. Though best known for creating such cult TV shows as Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and the recently-canceled Hannibal, Fuller is not only a self-professed lifelong fan of the Gene Roddenberry-created franchise but wrote 22 episodes of Deep Space Nine and Voyager between 1997 and 2001. "I would say that there was an audible sigh of relief from the Star Trek fan community," said Joe Outlaw, spokesperson for the international Star Trek fan club The Federation. "In general, I say that having Bryan Fuller involved, because of his historical publicly stated involvement with Star Trek, his background, his commitment to the traditional Star Trek universe, and...the involvement of Alex Kurtzman, who »

New Star Trek Series Gets Showrunner!

9 February 2016 10:53 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We have around 11 months until we get a new Star Trek series on TV--the first since Star Trek: Enterprise ended back in 2005, over a decade ago. Talk of a new series hasn't ceased since then, and until I actually see the show on my TV screen, I won't believe that it's coming back yet. But regardless of what I'm able to believe, the folks over at CBS are hard at work at making sure something does hit the airwaves in 2017.

Deadline is reporting that Bryan Fuller has been hired as the showrunner for the 2017 CBS series. For those unfamiliar with the man's body of work, his career started on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and continued into Star Trek: Voyager in the early 2000s. However, Fuller has gone on to create the amazing--yet short-lived--series Pushing Daisies, as well as the highly-acclaimed--and also short-lived--series Hannibal

Bryan Fuller Will Helm the New Star Trek TV Revival

9 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Set phasers to stun: Hannibal and Pushing Daisies producer Bryan Fuller is coming onboard the new Star Trek TV revival as a co-creator, executive producer, and — most important — showrunner. Fuller, whose entertainment-industry career began with him writing for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, will work with the already-announced Alex Kurtzman to co-create the new Trek incarnation, launching early next year on digital streaming network CBS All Access. He’ll then take the bridge as day-to-day producer of the show, ensuring a Star Trek vet is in charge of the latest chapter of the half-century-old franchise — something CBS Studios chief David Stapf says was essential to the revival. “Bryan is not only an extremely gifted writer, but a genuine fan of Star Trek,” Stapf said. “Having someone at the helm with his gravitas who also understands and appreciates the significance of the franchise and the »

Exclusive: Bryan Fuller confirms This god has a huge arc in 'American Gods' 1st season

1 February 2016 10:23 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Back in December, Bryan Fuller was in the throws of pre-production of American Gods for Starz. Based on the 2001 novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman, American Gods tells the tale of Shadow Moon. An ex-convict, Shadow is released from prison, only to be sucked into an supernatural world at the behest of his new employer. Fuller took time out of his day to speak with HitFix Harpy by phone to discuss what little he could about what it’s like to bring this visually spectacular fever dream to life. ******************* Hitfix Harpy: How are things coming along for American Gods? Bryan Fuller: Michael Green and I are having a ball. We're in the process of writing scripts, writing outlines, and sending writers off to write their [parts].

David Bowie’s music has even been used to save polar bears

11 January 2016 12:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we mourn the passing of David Bowie, we can’t help but marvel at how often his music has resonated with filmmakers, how often his songs were just what a movie needed to craft a key emotional moment. (HitFix’s Alan Sepinwall reflected on the prevalence and relevance of his music on both the big and small screen in this post.) Yet another time a filmmaker turned to Bowie, one you may have not seen: A 2008 short film called “Polarbearman.” It depicts a man trying to live normal life, as water levels in his house rise — simple and effective images to raise awareness about melting ice caps displacing polar bears. Lee Pace (“Pushing Daisies,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) stars in the six-minute film, made for environmental awareness project Live Earth. Pace doesn’t say a word in the short, except for when he puts in his earbuds, listens to Bowie’s “Five Years, »
