Amazon's plans for a Galaxy Quest TV series are back on
Star Trek: Discovery
is bringing Star Trek back to TV this September while Seth McFarlane's The Orville - somewhere between Star Trek spoof and starship-based comedy drama - will debut this autumn. But it seems plans are still afoot at Amazon to develop a TV series based on the ultimate Star Trek spoof - Galaxy Quest.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that writer-actor-comedian Paul Scheer is scripting a new version of a TV script for Amazon, taking over from Robert Gordon, who wrote the original film that starred Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni. It is not known if any of the surviving cast will be involved.
Previous plans to develop the series were put on hold when Rickman passed away last year, with the actor expressing an interest in being involved at the time.
More news on this as we have it.
