Don't count on a new Star Trek show coming to your screen any time soon. Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller has talked to X-Men director Bryan Singer about pitching one — but as long as the J.J. Abrams movies are coming out regularly, it probably won't happen.


That's what Fuller tells Entertainment Weekly, adding that if one did happen, it would have to be after the next movie, and Abrams would have to be in charge:

Bryan and I are big fans of Trek and have discussed a take on what we would do, and we would love to do it. I don't think anything is going to happen in any official capacity until after the next movie comes out. And I'm sure it would be wisely under J.J. Abrams' purview of what happens. He's the guardian of Trek right now.


Is a scenario where the two Bryans team up with Abrams to make this happen in 2014 too much of a longshot to dream about? If the three of them put their heads together, you could end up with something pretty amazingly cool. Just no lens flares, please. [EW]
