LOS ANGELES, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Bryan Fuller has exited his role as show-runner for CBS All Access' upcoming, streaming series Star Trek: Discovery.
"We are extremely happy with the creative direction of Star Trek: Discovery and the strong foundation that Bryan Fuller has helped us create for the series," CBS Television Studios said in a statement. "Due to Bryan's other projects, he is no longer able to oversee the day-to-day of Star Trek, but he remains an executive producer, and will continue to map out the story arc for the entire season. Alex Kurtzman, co-creator and executive producer, along with Fuller's producing partners and longtime collaborators, Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, will also continue to oversee the show with the existing writing and producing team. Bryan is a brilliant creative talent and passionate Star Trek fan, who has helped us chart an exciting course for the series. We are all committed to seeing this vision through and look forward to premiering Star Trek: Discovery this coming May 2017."
Fuller is also working on Starz's new series American Gods. His past credits include Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, Heroes and Star Trek: Voyager.
No casting has been announced yet for Star Trek: Discovery. All episodes of the new sci-fi series will be available exclusively on CBS All Access -- the network's digital-subscription, video on-demand and live-streaming service -- in the United States and on Netflix internationally.
