CBS ALL ACCESS GOES BLACK OPS WITH MICHELLE YEOH FOR NEW "STAR TREK" SERIES BASED ON SECTION 31

Jan. 14, 2018 - CBS All Access today announced plans to further expand the "Star Trek" universe with a new live-action series in development starring Michelle Yeoh. The series will expand on Yeoh's current role as a member of Starfleet's Section 31 division, a shadow organization within the Federation, on STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, which debuts its second season Thursday, Jan. 17 exclusively on CBS All Access in the U.S., and is distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media's Space channel and OTT service CraveTV.

The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios, Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth will serve as executive producers. Aaron Baiers will serve as co-executive producer along with Bo Yeon Kim, and Erika Lippoldt will also write the series.

"Michelle has shattered ceilings, broken boundaries, and astonished us with her grace and gravitas for decades. As a human, I adore her. As an actor, I revere her," said Alex Kurtzman. "Erika and Boey are remarkable, exciting writers who bring a fresh perspective to the world of 'Star Trek,' and we're all thrilled to explore the next wild chapter in the life of Captain Philippa Georgiou."

"I'm so excited to continue telling these rich 'Star Trek' stories," said Michelle Yeoh. "Being a part of this universe and this character specifically has been such a joy for me to play. I can't wait to see where it all goes - certainly I believe it will go 'where no WOMAN has ever gone before!'"

Michelle Yeoh is recognized as one of the greatest and the most successful actresses from the east. She can most recently be seen starring in John M. Chu's romantic comedy "Crazy Rich Asians," and in CBS' STAR TREK: DISCOVERY. The former Bond girl is best known for her roles in Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and its sequel, Rob Marshall's "Memoirs of a Geisha," Roger Spottiswoode's "Tomorrow Never Dies" and Danny Boyle's "Sunshine." Michelle also starred in Luc Besson's critically acclaimed "The Lady" and voiced a role in the DreamWorks animated hit "Kung Fu Panda 2."

The development of this new untitled series is the latest expansion of the "Star Trek" franchise. In addition to the hit original series STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, returning with season two on Thursday, Jan. 17, and STAR TREK: SHORT TREKS, a series of short stories tied to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and the overall "Star Trek" universe, CBS has announced a new untitled "Star Trek" series featuring Sir Patrick Stewart, reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, as well as its first animated series, STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS, developed by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan ("Rick and Morty").
