Nickelodeon Plans Animated Star Trek Series

Emmy winners Dan and Kevin Hageman (“Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark”) are reportedly developing a new CG animated “Star Trek” series which is aimed at teens and will air on Nickelodeon.

The story follows a group of lawless teenagers who discover a derelict Starfleet ship and take it on adventures while searching for meaning and salvation in the universe.

CBS’ Eye Animation Productions will produce the project which is also being executive produced by Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth, the Hagemans and Katie Krentz.

The project is separate from the animated “Star Trek” comedy series “Lower Decks” which hails from “Rick and Morty” head writer Mike McMahan and which is in the works for CBS All Access and won’t air until sometime in 2021.
