Les Moonves: Star Trek Won’t Be The Only Original Program On CBS All Access

CBS CEO Les Moonves discussed CBS All Access on Tuesday during a presentation to investors in New York and stated that the plan for the service is to launch three to four original series each year — in addition to Star Trek.

“Having ‘Star Trek’ as our first original is a declaration of how serious we are about building this service,” Moonves said of the VOD service.

CBS Interactive exec VP Marc DeBevoise said the goal will be “targeting traditional CBS TV audiences and beyond but with a premium sensibility and an eye on international.” He went on to give some demographic information regarding CBS All Access, saying that the median age of its subscribers is 42, with 58% female being female, and 36% in the millennial 18-34 demo.

The new Star Trek series is scheduled to launch on CBS All Access in early 2017.

    I don’t see any reason to get the all access.It would have been nice if the article had given us some tiny bit of info on what else they might be offering instead of just saying we’ll have more then the new Trek series.

    • Hi Arron — Believe me, I’d love to be able to give you a list of the stars cast for the show, the timeframe it’s set in and pictures of what the uniforms look like but we can only report the info that we have.

      It’s an interesting bit of info that Star Trek isn’t the only original content created exclusively for All Access.

      The juicy stuff will come but we have to be patient.

      • To be quite honest I’m kinda anxious.. My guess we could hear more in a couple of months..

  • I will not get CBS anything until they drop their lawsuits against Star Trek Fan Productions.
