“Star Trek” goes to Netflix internationally – We begin this edition of TV Quick Hits by answering a question that has long been on the minds of many international TV fans: What is going to happen with the new “Star Trek” series? It is airing on CBS All Access in America, but since that streaming platform is for the United States only, of course you’re going to wonder about where else the series could air.
Well, today Netflix has signed a deal with CBS Studios International, and that means that anywhere other than the United States and Canada (where Bell Media has the rights), you will be able to watch the show via the streaming platform. No Trekker gets left behind!
This new version will be executive-produced by Bryan Fuller, but for the time being, not much else is known about it.
“Luke Cage” poster – In preparation for the show’s official appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, the Twitter account for TV Guide Magazine has now confirmed what one of the posters will look like. It’s pretty rad, and it certainly has a retro feel to it.
New episodes of this show, which star Mike Colter as the comic character, will premiere on Netflix later this year.
“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” nabs John Oliver – Fresh off of an Emmy nomination for Variety Talk Series, the July 21 episode is going to feature none other than “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver. This should make for an entertaining chat; if nothing else, we do certainly like Jerry’s choice in car this time.
