What can fans expect from the new Star Trek series? Writer Michael Chabon recently discussed the upcoming CBS All Access TV show, Deadline reports.
As reported earlier, Stewart will reprise his Star Trek: The Next Generation role for a sequel series on CBS All Access. The sci-fi drama will follow Picard’s life 20 years after the events of the Nemesis feature film.
Speaking to Deadline, Chabon revealed Stewart sat in with the Star Trek writers for a couple of weeks:
He was in the room for two weeks. It was fantastic. That was sort of in the preliminary writers room that we had going before it expanded to the full room that it is now with a bunch of writers in there. I’m up in Berkeley and they are down in L.A.”
But that time with Patrick as a resource and as a very willing and literate resource, I think its going to make the show. It’s going to take it to another level. Just to have him participating in the way he participated? Amazing. He understands drama and he understands character and can bring to bear on that all of his experience doing Shakespeare and Beckett and everything in between. Plus he’s incredibly sweet and funny and charming and surprisingly humble and modest. He’s a wonderful collaborator and I can’t say enough about the amazing and unexpected benefit of the process.”
