‘Star Trek’ TV Series Beams Up Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth as Exec Producers

CBS is filling out the crew of the coming “Star Trek” reboot with Rod Roddenberry, son of franchise creator Gene Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth as executive producers.

The pair join showrunner Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin as exec producers on the latest iteration of “Star Trek” for TV. The CBS TV Studios production is set to premiere in early 2017 on the CBS All Access digital streaming service. Roth is chief operating officer of Roddenberry Entertainment.

“Gene Roddenberry, the Great Bird of the Galaxy, left a finely feathered nest for all who love ‘Star Trek’ to enjoy,” said Fuller. “And it is only fitting that Rod Roddenberry and Roddenberry Entertainment join our new ‘Trek’ adventure to ensure that his father’s legacy of hope for the future and infinite diversity in infinite combinations runs through our tales as Gene Roddenberry intended.”

Rod Roddenberry’s “Star Trek” lineage runs deep. His mother was Majel Barrett Roddenberry, who played Nurse Christine Chapel on the original 1966-69 NBC series. Gene Roddenberry died in 1991; Majel Roddenberry died in 2008.

Roddenberry Entertainment produces graphic novels, comics and documentary films as well as TV projects, some of which are derived from Gene Roddenberry’s archives.
