TV News: 2017 Star Trek and Wheel of Time

A couple bits of TV news have popped up recently that I thought may interest a few people.

2017 Star Trek TV series

The new TV series will start filming this fall in Toronto. The first Star Trek TV series to be made in Canada. But I think the biggest news is who is running the show. It’s Bryan Fuller, who was involved in Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Also, Rod Roddenberry will be executive producer with Fuller. With these two working on it, it sounds like it won’t be part of the film reboot. And that’s true. It’s going to be in the prime universe. When? Well, earlier rumours have said between the original series and TNG. Another more recent rumour said fifty years after TNG. But either way, we have a prime universe Star Trek TV series next year!

The Wheel of Time Optioned

It looks like we may get to see The Wheel of Time on TV in the near future. A studio has optioned it for TV and film, which I would suspect be an incredibly long TV series. Robert Jordan’s wife, Harriet McDougal, recently announced this.

What do you think of this news? Let me know in the comments below.
