Netflix's Original Programming: Enough to Turn Things Around?


Could a new Star Trek TV show really happen?

There's been a lot of buzz the past few days about the possibility that the creators of the Munsters reboot, now known as

Mockingbird Lane, could get a Star Trek TV show off the ground.

Both creators, Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer, have expressed a desire to bring back Star Trek in the past — Fuller wanted

to do a TV show set in the revamped timeline of J.J. Abrams' movies, while Singer wanted to do a show set in the far future.

And now, both Bryans are working together on Mockingbird Lane — so it's not surprising to hear that they've chatted about

their mutual interest in Star Trek. A report over at Ain't It Cool News, late last week, mentioned in passing that the two Bryans

had had conversations about it, and this got picked up over the weekend by a number of sites. From what we're hearing,

it sounds as though these are literally just conversations at this point, and there's nothing concrete — and definitely

nothing has been pitched to CBS yet. On the other hand, this gives us a good reason to hope that Mockingbird

Lane does well — so it gives the creators enough clout to pitch an expensive Star Trek show.

“Prometheus” follows the story of a team of explorers who discover a “clue to the origins of mankind on Earth,

leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There they must fight a

terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”

Set for a June 8th release, the film which may or may not be a prequel to “Alien”

also stars Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, and Idris Elba.

Man 'always wanted' police to chase him

BUTTE, Mont., Feb. 7 (UPI) --

A Montana man who told police he led them on a chase because he

"just always wanted to do that" was fined $1,000 for reckless driving.

John Hughes, 55, of Butte was fined Thursday after pleading guilty to misdemeanor

reckless driving while eluding a peace officer, The (Butte) Montana Standard reported Tuesday.


City Judge Dan Sweeney said the county attorney's office recommended no jail time

because Hughes has no criminal record and was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol

at the time of the offense.


Police said Hughes intentionally got a police car to chase him in Butte around 3:25 a.m.

and the chase reached the interstate, where Hughes drove at speeds exceeding 100 mph.

Hughes was eventually stopped when police deflated his tires with stop sticks.

A police report quotes Hughes as saying he started the chase because

"I just always wanted to do that."
