CBS ALL ACCESS ANNOUNCES NEW PREMIERE DATES FOR "STAR TREK: DISCOVERY" AND THE ALL-NEW EDITION OF "THE GOOD WIFE"

NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES - Sept. 14, 2016 - CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network's subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, today announced new premiere dates for its new original series STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and the all-new edition of "The Good Wife."

The highly anticipated STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will now launch in May 2017. The new premiere date is driven by the belief of the creative team that this gives the show the appropriate time for delivery of the highest quality, premium edition of the first new "Star Trek" TV series in over a decade.

"Bringing 'Star Trek' back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood," said executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller. "We aim to dream big and deliver, and that means making sure the demands of physical and post-production for a show that takes place entirely in space, and the need to meet an air date, don't result in compromised quality. Before heading into production, we evaluated these realities with our partners at CBS and they agreed: 'Star Trek' deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of."

"The series template and episodic scripts that Alex and Bryan have delivered are incredibly vivid and compelling," said David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios. "They are building a new, very ambitious 'Star Trek' world for television, and everyone involved supports their vision for the best timing to bring to life what we all love on the page."

Following its May 2017 premiere on the CBS Television Network, all episodes of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will be available in the U.S. exclusively on CBS All Access. Continuing the worldwide appeal of the franchise, each episode of the series will be available globally within 24 hours of its U.S. premiere, presented on Netflix in 188 countries and through Bell Media platforms in Canada.

In addition, CBS All Access announced today that their new edition of "The Good Wife" will debut in February 2017, essentially switching launch windows with STAR TREK: DISCOVERY providing two highly anticipated original premieres in the first half of 2017. The new "Good Wife" will premiere with a special broadcast on the CBS Television Network, and then move exclusively to CBS All Access. As previously announced, the new series will pick up one year after the events of the final episode of "The Good Wife." The new series will star Emmy Award-winner Christine Baranski, who will reprise her role as the beloved Diane Lockhart, joined by fan-favorite Cush Jumbo as Lucca Quinn, along with the introduction of new characters as the story evolves.

Robert and Michelle King, creators and executive producers of "The Good Wife," will return as the showrunners and executive producers of the spinoff. Phil Alden Robinson co-wrote and will executive produce the premiere episode along with the Kings. Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Liz Glotzer and Brooke Kennedy will also serve as executive producers. The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions.

In addition to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and the new edition of "The Good Wife," CBS All Access is also launching a new digital edition of BIG BROTHER, called BIG BROTHER: OVER THE TOP, on Sept. 28.

"We have an amazing inaugural slate of originals for CBS All Access and world-class creative teams behind each of our shows," said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive. "This line-up and release schedule will ensure we deliver the highest quality, premium series that are sure to appeal to both existing subscribers and new audiences alike, throughout the year."

CBS All Access is the CBS Television Network's digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service. In addition to its upcoming original series, CBS All Access gives CBS fans the ability to watch more than 8,500 episodes on demand - spanning current shows from primetime, daytime and late night, as well as past seasons of select series and classic TV hits. CBS All Access is currently available online at CBS.com, on mobile devices via the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, and on Roku Players, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Fire TV.

CBS All Access will continue to expand its lineup of original series with additional programming to be announced.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman's Secret Hideout, Fuller's Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg, Aaron Harberts, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth will serve as executive producers.
