New Star Trek Series & Metroid: The Sky Calls

CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a new Star Trek television series in January 2017.

We don't know much about it but this is what they have told us so far. The brand-new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.

The new series will start with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service. This will be the first original series developed specifically for U.S. audiences for CBS All Access, a cross-platform streaming service that brings viewers thousands of episodes from CBS’s current and past seasons on demand, plus the ability to stream their local CBS Television station live for $5.99 per month. CBS All Access already offers every episode of all previous Star Trek television series.
Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer for the new Star Trek TV series. Kurtzman co-wrote and produced the blockbuster films Star Trek (2009) with Roberto Orci, and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) with Orci and Damon Lindelof. Both films were produced and directed by J.J. Abrams. The new series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout. Kurtzman and Heather Kadin will serve as executive producers. Kurtzman is also an executive producer for the hit CBS television series Scorpion and Limitless, along with Kadin and Orci, and for Hawaii Five-0 with Orci.

I'm super excited for this though I don't like the idea that I'll have to pay for another streaming service to watch it.. but it's Star Trek and I'll pretty much do anything for a new Star Trek. You can read the original article HERE.

There is a short movie that I want to share with you guys. The creator is the husband of one of the coaches (Kimi) at NerdStrong, and the actress (on screen) is the wife of another coach (Blair) at NerdStrong. And my friend America did all the motion capture for this film. And if that's not enough they actually filmed some of it at the gym itself.

It's produced by Rainfall Films (coach Kimi's husbands company) and you might remember they produced this AMAZING Wonder Women short back in 2013, which you can watch HERE. That too had several of my friends in it.. but the one I want to share with you today is Metroid: The Sky Calls. It's based off a very popular video game from Nintendo. Hope you enjoy it, I thought it was a lot of fun.
