Gene Roddenberry, famed creator of Star Trek, attempted many times to launch additional sci-fi television programs during the 1970s, resulting in a number of unsold television pilots that were aired as made-for-TV movies. Two of these, Genesis II and Planet Earth, were released through Warner Archive last year. A third, The Questor Tapes (originally broadcast January 23rd, 1974 on NBC), is being revived by Roddenberry Productions and Imagine Television.
According to TrekMovie, Rod Roddenberry (Gene’s son) will help develop the new series and Tim Minear is currently being courted to produce it.
The announcement was made on Wednesday (January 20th) at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences TV Hall of Fame Ceremony, during which Gene Roddenberry was posthumously inducted. See The New York Post, The Hollywood Reporter and The New York Times Arts Beat for more.
