'Star Trek: Discovery' to Premiere in Late Summer or Fall, CBS CEO Says
"We're not going to rush it in. There's lots of postproduction, but I'm very confident based on what I've seen so far," Leslie Moonves told investors.
Leslie Moonves, CEO of CBS, on Monday told the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference that the reboot of the sci-fi franchise will debut "in late summer, early fall we're looking at probably, right now."
Originally slated to debut last month as CBS All Access' first original scripted series, the project has been delayed several times, most notably due to the departure of Bryan Fuller as show runner.
Netflix will make each episode of the new series available in 188 countries, minus the U.S. and Canada, within 24 hours of its U.S. premiere. "They paid a very good license fee," Moonves added.
