The awesome producer Bryan Fuller wants to makes an awesome new Star Trek TV series. Paramount won't let him, because they're busy letting J.J. Abrams make his Trek movies. But that doesn't mean Fuller doesn't have a captain in mind should he ever get the green light: Angela Bassett.
As he told Den of Geek during a recent interview:
I would love to do something on the Reliant. I want Angela Lansbury … Not Lansbury! I want Angela Bassett to be the captain, that’s who I would love to have, you know Captain Angela Bassett and First Officer Rosario Dawson. I would love to do that version of the show and but that’s in the future to be told.
Angela Bassett and Rosario Dawson? Holy hell, that would be awesome. Hey CBS/Paramount — J.J.'s doing Star Wars now, so seriously, give Fuller the Trek keys. This show needs to happen. Although in all honestly, I'd be equally excited to see a Fuller Star Trek TV series starring Angela Lansbury.
