CBS Interactive CEO Jim Lanzone believes Star Trek: Discovery would be cancellation fodder if it aired on broadcast rather than the network’s All Access streaming platform, per Recode.net:
“Sci-fi is not something that has traditionally done really well on broadcast. It’s not impossible, for the future, if somebody figures it out. But historically, a show like ‘Star Trek’ wouldn’t necessarily be a broadcast show, at this point.”
Would Star Trek: Discovery really be destined for cancellation if it aired on CBS? Will the series live long and prosper online? Or is it already doomed?
