CBS Shows Signs of Being a Legit Streaming Competitor After All

CBS Shows Signs of Being a Legit Streaming Competitor After All

Well now, it appears the deck has been shuffled yet again in the ongoing streaming wars, and it looks as though CBS may be shaping up to be a stronger contender than we’d previously anticipated.

CBS and Viacom announced on Tuesday a merger of their two companies under a new name, ViacomCBS, in a deal that valued the company at more than $28 billion, according to a press release. The merger,...

The Star Trek Movies You Don't Like Are Now Owned by the Same Company That Owns the Trek Movies You Only Mostly Dislike

The Star Trek Movies You Don't Like Are Now Owned by the Same Company That Owns the Trek Movies You Only Mostly Dislike

Allow us to introduce you to the latest inconsequential benefit of our megacorp dystopia. I have to admit it, as far as incredibly minor bright sides to the horrifying rise of media studio megamergers go, “At least CBS owns the Kelvin Timeline Star Trek movies” is not as immediately exciting as “At least the X-Men can appear in the MCU .”

After years of speculation and attempts, Deadline...

Robert Picardo Says He Could Sign Up for Star Trek: Picard's Second Season

Robert Picardo Says He Could Sign Up for Star Trek: Picard's Second Season

It gives me all the joy in the world that Star Trek: Picard is starting to feel like Star Trek: Voyager 2: Seven and the Doctor’s Electric Boogaloo.

Speaking to Trekkie Girls at London Film and Comic Con over the weekend, Picardo—who of course played both Voyager’s Emergency Medical Hologram, the Doctor, and said Hologram’s creator, Starfleet scientist Louis Zimmerman, in Star Trek: Voyager...

Watch the Birth of Galaxies in an Exclusive Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 VFX Reel

Season two of Star Trek: Discovery embraced the more fun side of the franchise, but still kept things action-packed and intense. That means a lot of cool explosions, larger-than-life galaxies, and scores of flying ships. This exclusive behind-the-scenes video shows how VFX studio Pixomondo created some of the biggest moments from the sophomore season of Discovery.

As you can see in the video...

The Spooky New CBS Thriller Evil Interprets Its Title in Both Ancient and Modern Ways

The Spooky New CBS Thriller Evil Interprets Its Title in Both Ancient and Modern Ways

Evil’s skeptic vs. supernatural premise is somewhat familiar—here, science-minded psychologist teams up with a pair of church-backed investigators to assess eerie crimes—but its cast is undeniably excellent. At San Diego Comic-Con , Mike Colter (Luke Cage ) and Katja Herbers (Westworld ) took the stage to chat about their new show and debut the CBS series’ first episode and we’ve got some...

There Was Almost Too Much News at the Star Trek Comic-Con Panel

Discovery. Picard. Lower Decks. And that’s just the start of the topics covered at CBS’s wide-ranging “Enter the Star Trek Universe” panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.

Though the return of some familiar faces on Picard was probably the highlight of the Hall H panel, fans learned so much more about these upcoming CBS All Access streaming shows. Characters, intentions, tones and much, much...

Well, Alex Kurtzman can’t singlehandedly manage every damn one of these Star Trek series himself.

CBS has officially announced that Chabon—who has been on board with the series since its early days, writing and executive producing—will take the conn as Star Trek: Picard’s showrunner. Here’s a statement from Kurtzman given to Deadline on the news, possibly delivered with the tone of someone...

Looks Like the Next Star Trek: Short Treks Series Will Bring Back Some Familiar Faces

Star Trek: Discovery’s third season is leaving the prequel era of pre-Trek behind for a bold new future —which meant bidding a bittersweet farewell to its take on Spock and the Enterprise crew at the end of season two. But good news: At least some of the gang is seemingly returning soon.

The eagle-eyed team at TrekMovie noticed that director Mark Pellington recently posted (and then deleted)...

Why We Will Always Love the Humble Heroism of Captain Picard

Why We Will Always Love the Humble Heroism of Captain Picard

“It’s for the children...I’m a role model,” Jean-Luc Picard awkwardly jokes when a Starfleet Admiral hailing the Enterprise notices the rainbow-colored “Captain Picard Day” banner in the background of their communique in “The Pegasus.” Twenty-four years after he first said it, it’s not just the kids aboard the Enterprise he’s a role model to.

That seventh season episode of Star Trek: The Next...

Alex Kurtzman's Plan for More Star Trek Than Ever Before: Keep It Varied

Star Trek: Discovery is already charting itself a bold new course going into season three. Picard is on the way. And that’s before we get to the animated shows and the seemingly zillions of other Star Trek projects in the works. In an age with more Trek than ever before, how does its architec t plan on avoiding fatigue? Variety...and toys, apparently.

The 9 Weirdest, Dumbest, or Beautifully Baffling TV Pilots of 2019

The 9 Weirdest, Dumbest, or Beautifully Baffling TV Pilots of 2019

Every year, networks get ready for the fall season with a “hot” list of new television shows. Usually, the final lineups are culled from a slough of pilot episodes, spec scripts, and at least one person’s crushed hopes and dreams. Here are some of the weirdest ones we’ve spotted this year—along with whether you can actually expect them anytime soon.

This year, the fall lineup is looking...

Luke Cage Star Mike Colter Will Battle Evil on a New CBS Show

Luke Cage Star Mike Colter Will Battle Evil on a New CBS Show

These days, good genre shows are usually relegated to cable networks or streaming services. Netflix, FX, Syfy, Cartoon Network, HBO, and so on. There are exceptions, of course. The Good Place and the DC shows , for example. But if history has taught us anything it’s that most of the time genre shows on network TV are kind of bland.

That’s why we’re cautiously optimistic after watching the...
