American company CBS was expressed about the lack of diversity in the movie "Star trek: Discovery". Executive Director Bryan fuller has made it clear that his new series will not have this problem.
Fuller announced Wednesday that the new show will be different because the main rolewill have a female character and will respect the history of the franchise. Fuller also noted that a new series would have "absolutely" hilarious character.

The new series will be shot in the "Prime" universe - and occur 10 years prior to the beginning of the five year mission of captain Kirk. "It gives us the opportunity to bridge the gap between the movie and original series," said fuller. He added that the show will differ from the movies stage. Viewers can also expect to see robots, time travel and more than one alien creature.
