Two Bryans for Star Trek TV Series?

AICN is reporting that Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer are considering developing a new Star Trek TV series. They wrote, "Fuller tells AICN exclusively that the two Bryans, who have long (but separately) contemplated new “Star Trek” TV series, have discussed the possibility of pooling their resources to take a new corner of Gene Roddenberry’s multiverse to the small screen." The two are currently working together for a remake of The Munsters called "Mockingbird Lane". The pair's sci-fi credentials are pretty extensive and they have a good track record for television.

Fuller's previous credentials include Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and creating of critically acclaimed shows Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, and Pushing Daisies. If you were a fan of the first season of Heroes, you can also thank him as his leaving after the first season is the primary reason the show turned to crap. As for Singer, he was the director of The Usual Suspects, X-Men 1 & 2, and executive produces House.

Obviously I love the idea but I suspect Paramount is not that interested as they will want to remain focused on the movies. I think they need to give it serious thought as getting the cast together for Star Trek 13 will be difficult and expensive as the cast all continue to enjoy success outside the franchise. Forget about them coming back for Star Trek 14 once their three movie contract expires.
