'Galaxy Quest' TV Series Heads to Amazon

The crew of the NSEA Protector is on a course for Amazon Studios.

Entertainment Weekly reports the streaming service is partnering with Paramount Television to develop that "Galaxy Quest" TV series, based on the 1999 sci-fi comedy.

As initially indicated in April, the film's co-writer Robert Gordon is returning to pen the pilot and executive produce, alongside director Dean Parisot and producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein.

A parody of "Star Trek" and other sci-fi classics, "Galaxy Quest" starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell and Daryl Mitchell as the cast of the long-canceled TV show who become reluctant heroes when an alien race in need mistakes the series for a historical documentary.

Financially successful and critically acclaimed at the time of its release (it even won a Hugo Award), “Galaxy Quest” has developed a cult following over the past 16 years, particularly among “Star Trek” fans.
