Seth MacFarlane Reboot Star Trek for TV

The recent issue of The Hollywood Reporter has an interesting interview with Seth McFarlane, the current king of Fox's Sunday night animation block with Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show (with more in the pipeline). As part of that he mentioned an interest in reboot Star Trek for TV, while acknowledging that is unlikely to happen.
MacFarlane is particularly eager to reboot one of his favorite franchises, Star Trek, for TV. "I don't know who would give me the keys to that car," he jokes, acknowledging that the films have been so profitable for Paramount that he isn't so sure they have a lot of interest in getting back into the TV business. "But I’d love to see that franchise revived for television in the way that it was in the 1990s: very thoughtful, smartly written stories that transcend the science fiction audience.”
