Late Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry is to be inducted into the U.S. Television Academy's Hall of Fame to mark his work on the sci-fi franchise.
The producer, who died in 1991, was responsible for seven series of the cult show, beginning in 1966. He also took the reins on 10 big-screen versions of the sci-fi classic.
Roddenberry will be posthumously added to the Hall of Fame at a ceremony on 20 January (10) at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.
Other stars to be inducted include Saturday Night Live's Don Pardo, U.S. comedy brothers Tom and DICk Smothers, as well as actress Candice Bergen, who starred in Murphy Brown in the 1990s.
Director Charles Lisanby and The Price Is Right creator Bob Stewart will also join the list.
