‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Expected to “Go on for a While”

USS-Discovery, "Star Trek: Discovery"

For fans of sci-fi and Star Trek in general, the upcoming launch of Star Trek: Discovery is an exciting time. It’s also exciting for CBS, as the series is expected to be a major draw for the CBS All-Access streaming platform.

Either way, the series is already making money for the company, with president and CEO Les Moonves telling shareholders that the series is already profitable due to licensing and international deals (along with a nice bump in CBS All-Access subscriptions). The profitability comes before Discovery has even started production.

Because of this early success (and looking ahead to to possibility of spin-offs), Mooves anticipates a long life for the series, saying, “Going forward, obviously, we’re doing thirteen episodes initially with Star Trek [Discovery], we are fairly certain — although we haven’t done one day of production — that the series is gonna go on for a while.” Moonves predicts that international sales will cover about 60 percent of production costs for the series, but this has yet to be confirmed with solid numbers.
