STAR TREK ALL ACCESS Series to Be Filmed at Pinewood Toronto Studios [UPDATED]

STAR TREK ALL ACCESS Series to Be Filmed at Pinewood Toronto Studios

The upcoming Star Trek series that’s being produced for CBS All Access will call Toronto’s Pinewood Studios home.

As we reported last week, the new series will be the first live-action Star Trek television show produced outside the United States. The Pinewood Toronto Studios complex is the largest of its kind in Canada and includes a 46,500-square foot “mega-stage” along with ten others which span more than 11 acres.

We’ve included photos of the complex below.

Several blockbusters have been filmed at the facility, including Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Pacific Rim, RoboCop, Pixels and Suicide Squad.

“We are very near capacity, and yes, Vancouver is ahead in terms of studio infrastructure, but our clients tell us they prefer to be in Toronto whenever possible, for many reasons,” Cinespace VP Jim Mirkopoulos told The Hollywood Reporter.

UPDATE (5/2):

CBS made it official on Monday, via Twitter.

The new series, produced by CBS Television Studios, will launch in early 2017 with a broadcast TV special on CBS. The first episode and all subsequent episodes will be exclusively shown in the US on the video streaming service CBS All Access.

Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller and Rod Roddenberry have been announced as executive producers, with Nicholas Meyer (director of The Wrath of Khan and The Undiscovered Country and co-writer of The Voyage Home) is serving as a writer and consulting producer.
