CBS intends to launch its much-anticipated revamp of “Star Trek” for its growing “All Access” broadband service some time in late summer or early fall, according to Leslie Moonves, chief executive of CBS Corp.
Speaking at an investor conference organized by Morgan Stanley, the CBS chief said “Star Trek: Discovery,” the new series, required “a lot of post production” but that he was “confident” in its quality. “It’s important to get it right, and Star Trek is the family jewels,” he said. The project has been delayed a few times , initially owing to Bryan Fuller’s decision to step back from showrunner duties.
The new “Star Trek” is seen as a big lure for “All Access,” a $5.99 a month streaming-video-on-demand service. CBS recently launched a spin-off of “The Good Wife,” called “The Good Fight,” for the service.
“There are millions and millions of Trekkies out there,”Moonves said during his remarks. “We »

Syfy won’t be ordering another season of thriller “Incorporated,” Variety has confirmed.
The news comes a little more than a month after “Incorporated” finished its first season on the NBCU cable network. Deadline first reported the cancelation.
“Incorporated” came from executive producers Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Jennifer Todd, with “The Good Wife” scribe Ted Humphrey as showrunner, and was a hot commodity when brought to the marketplace. The show was created by David and Alex Pastor, who wrote and directed the pilot; Damon and Affleck’s Pearl Street Films produced along with CBS Television Studios and Syfy’s sister studio Universal Cable Productions.
Set in a future where corporations have unlimited power, “Incorporated” revolved around Ben Larson (Sean Teale, “Reign”), a young executive who concealed his true identity to infiltrate a very dangerous corporate world to save the woman he loves and quickly found he wasn’t the only one in this world with a »

Christine Baranski is used to fans approaching her on the street but she’s always surprised when most of them say the same thing to her.
“More often than not, they point to me and say, ‘Leonard’s mother!’ even though I appear infrequently as her on The Big Bang Theory,” Baranski tells People in this week’s issue. “The show is just such a megahit. There are worse things to be called, believe me.”

Well, they can't all be winners. That seems to be the moral of The Good Fight, three episodes in, and applies to "The Schtup List." Spoiler warning! The Good Wife was known for its fast-paced, high-stakes race against time episodes, something the legal drama almost always did well. But The Good Fight's first attempt at one failed to recapture the sense of urgency its predecessor almost always succeeded in conveying. Lucca (Cush Jumbo) and Diane (Christine Baranski) were tasked with defending their malpractice client when he was arrested for aiding a terrorist. A brief rewind: Zachary Knighton from Happy Endings played a world-class surgeon working with Doctors Without Borders and providing Skype »

The premiere episode of CBS’ “The Good Fight” brought in 7.2 million viewers on an otherwise sleepy Sunday night for the broadcast networks in primetime.
“Good Fight,” a spinoff of the 2009-2016 CBS drama “The Good Wife,” is the first original series to land on the CBS All Access Svod platform. The first episode got a promotional send off on the mothership broadcast network as well, but the remaining nine episodes will only be available via CBS All Access, rolling out on a weekly basis.
“Good Fight” (7.2 million viewers, 0.7 rating in adults 18-49) bowed to rave reviews and a big media push around star Christine Baranski. CBS airing of the premiere in the 8 p.m. slot following “60 Minutes” serves as an extended marketing campaign to encourage fans to sign up for All Access.
