We’re ten months away from the launch of the 2017 Star Trek show on CBS All Access, but a first batch of preliminary photos have already leaked out from the production floor as CBS beings to lay the groundwork for the upcoming series.
MARCH 22 UPDATE:
TrekCore has now confirmed with CBS that these leaked photos (featured below, and on many other sites over the past week, ostensibly from a CBS lighting technician) are in fact, not from the upcoming “Star Trek” production, but from another unrelated project.
Our apologies for featuring these incorrect images.
Taken by an on-set lighting technician at CBS Television City in Los Angeles whom we spoke to today, these photos emerged from the studio’s Stage 33:
Before anyone jumps to conclusions, these pre-production photos are from a promotional shoot for the new series, not for the series itself.
Shot over the course of eight long hours on Tuesday, we confirmed, the spacesuit-clad stand-in spent a lot of time in front of a rocky, barren landscape (in reality, the greenscreen wall shown above), testing out different looks for the promo spot.
This is not a confirmation that the 2017 series is actually going to be shooting principle photography in Los Angeles — another question we’re waiting to have answered — but it’s nice to see some forward motion from the production team.
