Star Trek Set For Tv Return?

Cult sci-fi series STAR TREK is set for a return to the small screen - a Hollywood writer is looking to produce a new TV show to tie in with the upcoming movie.
The space age series, starring William Shatner, became a cult hit after it first aired in 1966 and has spawned six spin-off shows and 10 films.
A new prequel movie, directed by Lost creator J.J. Abrams, is set to hit cinemas this summer (09) and Pushing Daisies screenwriter Bryan Fuller is hoping to capitalise on the film's success with a new spin-off TV series.
He says, "I told my agent and told the people of J.J. Abrams' team I want to create another Star Trek series and have an idea that Im kicking around. I would love to return to the spirit of the old series with the colours and attitude. I loved Voyager and Deep Space Nine, but they seem to have lost the 60s fun and I would love to take it back to its origin.
"I would love to do it in the same era as the J.J. Abrams movie, but on another starship on a completely different adventure."
