While CBS All Access are forging ahead with new shows, seemingly announcing exciting and expansive projects on a regular basis, news that Trek shows are being developed away from the streaming service may come as a surprise.
Now, a new kids focused animated show is being deveoped at Nickleodeon, something that fans have waited for since the mid 70's, and have been teased with thorughout the TNG era. Variety look at the details.
Variety has learned that CBS Television Studios and Nickelodeon are negotiating for a new “Star Trek” animated series aimed at kids.
Plot details on the new series are being kept under wraps, but it hails from writers Kevin and Dan Hageman. The Hagemans are known for their work on animated shows such as “Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu” and “Trollhunters.” They also worked on the story for the films “Hotel Transylvania,” “The Lego Movie,” and “The Lego Ninjago Movie.” They are repped by WME and Underground Management.
This will seemingly pitch at the kids where Lower Decks will most certaoinly be aimed for the Rick and Morty crowd.
