Posted May 10, 2018 01:38:24 The new Star Wars film franchise is coming to CBS, and it looks like CBS has given the showrunner of the new series, Julie Plec, a contract.
CBS has not yet officially announced the new showrunner, but we do know she is working on the pilot and that CBS is making a decision by June 30.
The Star Trek franchise has had a pretty bad reputation, so CBS has to be happy with her.
It is a great opportunity to get her in the writers room, because she will have a great background as a director and writer.
Plec will also have the opportunity to work on the CBS television network as an executive producer.
CBS is expected to announce the new star of the show later this month.
Plecs latest TV credits include the Emmy-winning series CSI: Cyber, which was nominated for a Golden Globe, and the NBC comedy series Modern Family.
The showrunner on Star Trek Beyond, Michael Burnham, is a writer on The Good Wife and is set to write the CBS drama Quantico.
