Roddenberry's Forgotten Show To Be Revived

The son of STAR TREK creator GENE RODDENBERRY has teamed up with movie director RON HOWARD to bring one of his late father's forgotten TV projects back to the small screen.
Rod Roddenberry has struck a deal with Howard's Imagine TV company to develop The Questor Tapes into a new show.
The script, about a robot with incomplete memory tapes who is searching for his creator, was originally written by Roddenberry as a 13-episode TV series, but after disagreements with bosses at America's NBC network the sci-fi mogul abandoned the project.
The production eventually aired as a one-off small screen movie in 1974 - and now Roddenberry's son is hoping to bring The Questor Tapes back to life to honour his dad's memory.
Rod Roddenberry says, "My father always felt that Questor was the one that got away. He believed that the show had the potential to be bigger than Star Trek."
