We made it everyone.
We now live in a time where the cult classic parody movie Galaxy Quest from 1999 is going to become a television series. Variety reports the original co-writer of the film Robert Gordon is currently in talks with Paramount Television to bring the project to live. The idea is currently being shopped around at various studios looking for a bite. Original director Dean Parisot and executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are also involved.
The TV version would follow the same basic premise as the film. A “has-been cast of beloved 1970’s Star Trek-esque TV series inadvertently gets reunited for a real space mission to help an alien race.”
While we may not be getting a new Star Trek show anytime soon, this is the next best thing folks. For those that like a bit more comedy than drama in there television watching, this is actually the best thing.
