Careful here, Trekkies.

A lengthy and rumor-based report out of the Latino Review said that CBS is in the process of bringing Star Trek back to where it began. Namely, the small screen.

"GREAT news, Trekkers, CBS is looking to bring Star Trek back to TV...

We don't have too many details about the new Star Trek series CBS is going to get working on, but I spent some time filling you in on Federation, because it seems like the same people who made that pitch could be involved. Bryan Singer's name has been mentioned for the new CBS Trek as a possible Executive Producer through his Bad Hat Harry productions. While "Star Trek: Reboot the Universe" was invalidated by 2008's movie Trek, Star Trek: Federation still has a trio of enthusiastic producers, a script and a writer ready to go should CBS decide to give Singer the ahead to develop this new series.

Robert Burnett is rumored to be working on a non-Trek project with Skydance Productions (Skydance worked with Paramount, McQuarrie and Bad Robot on M:I 5) and simultaneously keeping one foot in the Trek world. He's currently producing (one of the producers) a project independent of all previously mentioned parties, Star Trek: Axanar, a 90-minute fan-made feature film about "The Four Years War," as mentioned in the TOS episode "Whom Gods Destroy."

Latin Review also mentions J. Michael Straczynski, of Babylon 5 fame, as a possible contributor.

If you've paid attention, this is not the first time we've heard it. Rumors clanged around the ol' Internet last year that growing original content maker Netlix wanted to take a stab at showing starfleet command.

M. Night Shyamalan's Mystery Show Tries to Convince You It's Not Twin Peaks

- -

If you weren't irritated at the last four or five projects with M. Night Shyamalan's name, then maybe this new Fox show will interest you. Matt Dillon and Terrance Howard co-star in this Pacific Northwestern, kooky small town, mystery show that apparently isn't Twin Peaks.

Given that Howard's starring vehicle Empire is a little bit popular you can't imagine he'll remain a longstanding member of that cast.

If you're still excited, it's coming in May!

News About Fox's Gotham Prequel Series

- -

In September, Fox gave the go-ahead on a series set in the Batman universe called Gotham. Focused on the career of Jim Gordon before he became the Commissioner of Police, Gotham will take place during Bruce Wayne's youth and will portray the origins of some of Batman's most famous villains.

We're guessing to see the stories of The Joker, The Riddler, Penguin and maybe Catwoman. We'll just have to wait to see.
